Plastic Bag Ban
Sonoma County waste management officials are advancing a countywide push to ban carry-out plastic bags. So far, 7 of 9 county cities have agreed in principal to support the initiative, but so far only Sonoma, Windsor, Sebastopol, and County Supervisors have formally supported the ban. Rohnert Park, Healdsburg, Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Cloverdale and Cotati have yet to decide. Unanimous support from all 10 entities is required for the ban to go into effect.
June 19, 2013 County Supervisors give formal approval to ban. This makes 4 of the required 10 votes to enact the ban. Read this PD story
