Athens City Council

Council Member Alan Swank, 4th Ward, holds up a recyclable paper bag, made of mostly recycled materials, during the Athens City Council committee meeting on Monday in council chambers on the third floor of the city building, 8 E. Washington St., Athens. The bag, which costs $0.32, is an example of what city businesses can use when an ordinance banning single-use plastic bags goes into effect.

Athens City Council worked to hash out three key details of the proposed ordinance reducing the use of single-use plastic bags in the city.
