South Tahoe seeking feedback on plastic bag ban

The South Lake Tahoe City Council wants feedback from local business owners on how the city’s new plastic bag ban is affecting them.

The issue is the subject of a May 14 workshop in the City Council Chambers. It starts at 5:30 p.m.

Adopted last October with a 3-2 vote, the plastic bag ban took effect for grocers and food vendors in the city on Jan. 15, though the City Council opted to not impose any fines for violations in the first three months.

The ban is slated to take effect for other retail businesses in the city on Oct. 15.
