Last Thursday, the Humboldt Waste Management Authority (HWMA) voted unanimously to start the Initial Study to plan for the bag ban ordinance! Once that is complete, in 60-90 days, the Board will know which direction needs to be taken…a full EIR or a Negative Declaration. Many thanks to everyone that phoned in and left comments to the Board and attended the meeting!
