Community Meeting to Tackle Single Plastic Bags

April 23, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

12400 Elam Road
Balch Springs, TX 75180

All residents, business, property owners, and stakeholders are invited to discuss the “pros and cons” to Keep Balch Springs Beautiful. Plastic bags along major highways and side streets within city limits have increased rapidly which detract from the environment of a city that is known for its springs. Hence the name—Balch SPRINGS. Mayor Carrie Gordon’s expectation is “healthy” dialogue for the formation of ordinance language, if warranted. Mayor Gordon states, “A number of Texas cities are tackling these issues for their respective reasons. We are addressing an issue that has been on the Council’s radar with complaints mainly coming from our largest retail operations as it relates to costs associated with property maintenance and code violations.” Guest speakers will be on hand to address specific questions about this topic.
