Should Fort Collins Charge a Nickel For Plastic Bags at the Grocery Store? [POLL]

Fort Collins is considering a fee for shopping bags…Again! A 10-cent bag fee was defeated in Fort Collins in 2013. This time it is five cents. The Fort Collins City Council is hosting an open house to hear public opinion on the proposal on today from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the city building. The city council will review comments and then review the ordinance again on May 20th.

Honestly that sickens me.  I laughed when the issue came up in Boulder and I just shrugged it off as “That’s Boulder”.  However, Fort Collins is my home and this is getting serious.

I use those plastic bags for everything from cat poop removal to dental floss to carrying my breakfast to work in them.  The bag I am holding in the picture above once held a couple fiber bars, cheese sticks, and some almonds. It’s my redneck lunch pail.  Please Fort Collins! Don’t give in to the tree hugging crowd. Don’t charge me for my plastic bags.

Maybe you don’t agree with me, and that’s fine.  You can use your cloth bags and I will use my plastic ones and we will get along just fine.  What do you think? It’s our web question of the day.
