South Portland puts fee on plastic bags

Forecaster - City councilors voted unanimously to make South Portland the second city in the state to charge a fee for single-use shopping bags, and to ban polystyrene food containers. The second reading of the single-use bag ordinance was almost halted by Councilor Tom Blake, who favored an ordinance that would ban single-use bags, too, a path that Falmouth is poised to explore.
