A proposal to limit the availability of free ‘non-reusable bags’ in San Marcos is under review by city officials, who have slated a meeting to gauge public opinion and receive suggestions.
The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 28 at the Dunbar Recreation Center, which is located at 801 MLK Drive.
Per the city council’s direction on Nov. 1, city staff are studying the feasibility of preventing, via ordinance, many kinds of merchants from giving away bags with limited re-use potential. Of particular interest to policymakers is the City of Brownsville’s bag law.
Public input gathered at the meeting will be examined by the city’s Municipal Solid Waste Task Force. The task force will then issue a recommendation or present options to the council.Email | Print
