Another meeting announcement: The city is proposing a ban on all Styrofoam food containers as well as charging 20-cents for disposable bags at grocery, drug and convenience stores. “The objective is not to penalize people. It’s not saying you’re bad people and we’re trying to get rid of you. The objective is to get everyone moving in the right direction,” Richard Conlin, Seattle City Council Chair told King 5 News. Whether you support or oppose this legislation, the city wants to hear from you. There is a public hearing tonight at City Hall in the council chambers at 7 p.m.
Update: The PI has a story on the meeting here.
