Columbia residents have an opportunity Thursday evening to testify about a proposed trash bag ordinance.
The city’s Solid Waste Utility will host a 6 pm meeting on the proposed ordinance, which would no longer require the use of Columbia city logo bags. It would also repeal the provision that requires the city to supply trash bags to customers.
City officials say the proposed ordinance would save the utility more than $1.6 million annually.
The issue will go to Columbia’s city council in December, for the final say.
