On February 19, 2019, City Council requested that staff bring back an ordinance on March 6, 2019 to prohibit the sale, use, and distribution of polystyrene meat trays.  After hearing comments from the public and grocery store representatives on March 6, 2019, the City Council directed that an implementation date of January 1, 2020 and a feasibility waiver process be incorporated in the draft Ordinance.  Thereafter, the Council introduced Ordinance No. 19-0009, as amended.
