This ban is dumb. Now our city will lose money because I would go somewhere I can get bags for free. Grocery shopping will not be done in my native city anymore. Thanks city council.

As i am for the plastic bag ban I think it is ridiculous that i should have to pay for a paper bag. Before plastic bags most stores gave paper bags for free. If you're going to charge me for a paper bag I want to see that money go to a good cause like feeding our children or helping the homeless and not just to line a corporate pocket.

This is the government we are talking about. When have they ever been good at managing money. I am not saying I am that much better, but it is better than pissing it off to the government. That is also crazy because plastic bags are bad for the environment lets charge for plastic bags and we can make money from paper bags as well. This is plain greed and I urge others to do business outside of Mountain View and they will fix this back. It is like our CRV tax. It is BS and the government over reaching finding a new way everyday to let you know that they are the power not the people anymore.
