Coun. Dale Bass has already admitted she has more than 400 plastic bags in her house.

She said she gives them to worthwhile charity organizations that recycle them into sleeping mats for the homeless.

They are also used in all the dog parks by dog walkers to keep these areas free of dog feces. Without these bags, no one would pick up dog waste.

Enacting more bylaws that are ridiculous and hard to enforce is a waste of taxpayers’ money.
