Plastic Ban in Mount Pleasant

The Mount Pleasant Police, Legal, Judicial Committee voted unanimously to approve a proposed plastic packaging ban. The full body of council will hear first reading on the measure next week. The ordinance was proposed by town councilman Jim Owens last month. The legal department has drafted an ordinance to enforce the ban which will not go into effect until a year from now. The year grace period is designed to not only educate the public but to allow business to prepare for the switch. (Moultrie News)
