City Council Testimony- May 2019
In May 2019, we nominated members of SFS to testify in front of the Omaha City Council in support of the Ban the Bag Ordinance proposed by Councilman Pete Festerson. This ordinance would have banned the sale of plastic bags in Omaha, and was passed by the city council but then vetoed by Mayor Jean Stothert. For more information, consult the article below :)
