Woodstock to hold joint meeting on reusable bag initiative
The Woodstock Environmental Commission and Cultural and Social Awareness Commission will hold a joint meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday in City Hall to continue a discussion of a reusable bag initiative in the city.
The agenda states that this meeting will focus on updates for the community reusable bag effort and research that has been done on this matter within the city. Discussions are scheduled to include the cost of purchasing cloth bags, submissions for the design of the bags from students and wholesale pricing of the bags for retailers.
