Village Trustee Colette Lueck suggested at the end of Monday's village board meeting that Oak Park follow Chicago's lead in banning plastic bags at most stores in the village.
"Since most of the chains in the city are chains that operate here, and since Chicago has already adopted and passed an ordinance, we would have a model to adopt or modulate for our own uses," Lueck said.
Trustees Adam Salzman and Glenn Brewer also voiced support for the idea.
