Plastic Bag Ban Moves Forward in Chico

Chico city leaders have taken the first step in considering a ban on plastic bags. The Council voted 5 to 2 Tuesday night to send the issue to the Internal Affairs Committee to develop an ordinance. Councilmember Scott Gruendl says a trip to the local landfill provided him with evidence of the problem.  The council also selected a recruitment firm to handle the search for a new city manager, but Councilmember Gruendl recused himself from the vote, saying he may apply for the city manager job and did not want to disqualify himself.
