Apparently our City Council is considering a ban on plastic bags given to customers in most Glendale stores. In its place, customers will have to purchase paper bags at 10 cents per bag if they don’t have a reusable bag.
Our council wants to copy what the unincorporated areas of L.A. County did earlier this year. This ban in Glendale would be a huge inconvenience for all residents of Glendale and should not be the sole decision of just the five City Council members. There should be a referendum so the voters can decide.
If the council does follow the county law, this newspaper owes it to its readers to publish an article on the front page on how each and every council member voted and let the voters decide if they are worthy of the job on the next election day.
