City Council Approves Plastic Bag Ban

Corvallis City Council voted 8 to 1 in favor of banning plastic bags in Corvallis businesses. The controversial ban was proposed last fall. Businesses with over 50 employees will have 6 months to enact the necessary changes, where businesses with 25 employees or less will have 1 year. Originally the ban called for all businesses under 25 employees to be exempt entirely from the initiative. However that is not the case in the newest version.
