A store receiving its first violation would receive a warning, $250
fine for second violation, $500 for subsequent violations.
Signage would be required at the point of sale informing consumers
of the amount of the charge.
The City would provide annual reports to the Council and the public
on the outcomes of the initiative, including reduction in bag waste and
the use and distribution of reusable bags, based on a baseline
established at enactment.
