The St. Augustine Beach City Commission this week examined two proposed ordinances: one to prevent the use, sale, and distribution of single-use plastic bags and another concerning plastic straws and Styrofoam.

The wording of the ordinances will be studied, reviewed and updated for the first reading at next month’s commission meeting. The City Commission is taking public comment on the proposals through the city’s website.
