Danville residents, restaurateurs and merchants are invited to attend three upcoming information sessions regarding a proposed ordinance in Danville that would prohibit retailers and restaurants from distributing single-use carryout plastic bags.
State legislators are currently at work on Senate Bill 270, state law that would ban plastic bags for retailers and grocers on a limited basis. The Town Council may consider an ordinance for Danville that would ban the bags on a wider scale, including retailers and restaurants not affected by the proposed state law. Details on the proposed ban can be found atwww.danville.ca.gov/plasticbags.
The Town will hold three information sessions over the next two weeks, to provide background on the ordinance as well as receive feedback from residents and the business community.
The information session this week is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. July 9, 2014. Next week, sessions will be held at 8:30 a.m. July 15, 2014 and 7:00 p.m. July 16, 2014.
All sessions will be held at the Veterans Memorial Building, 115 E. Prospect Ave.
For more information, contact Assistant to the Town Manager Nat Rojanasathira at (925) 314-3328 or email@example.com.
