KERMIT, TX – Kermit city leaders have given preliminary approval for a plastic bag ban. According to City Manager Pete Kampfer, City Council has had their first reading of ordinance. The ordinance requires businesses with sales of $1-million or more to utilize reusable bags instead of plastic bags. Violation of the ban could result in a fine up to $5,000 dollars. The city staff is smoothing out implementation details and the ordinance will go before council for final approval in August.
