Camden City Councilman Jeffrey Graham would like to see single-use plastic bags disappear from stores located in the city limits. Speaking during Tuesday night’s Camden City Council meeting’s “other business,” Graham proposed holding a public hearing in two weeks in order for citizens and merchants to comment on a proposed ordinance and then possibly having council consider first reading of such an ordinance two weeks after that.
