EUGENE, Ore. — Eugene City Council will have their hands full on Monday night, voting on two key issues.
Councilors will take action on a city-wide plastic bag ban and the shipment of coal through Eugene.
If Eugene passes the bag ban, it would follow Portland and Corvallis in removing plastic bags in all stores. The ordinance would also call for a charge of five cents for paper bags.
Councilors will also vote on a resolution to allow the City Attorney to investigate if the city can enact laws to prevent the shipment of coal through Eugene to Coos Bay.
The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. Monday night at the Eugene Public Library.
