The use of plastic grocery bags could have its days numbered in the city of Big Spring, as the city council is expected to begin discussions on the use â€” and possible elimination â€” of the items.
According to City Manager Gary Fuqua, the council will discuss the matter during its Tuesday night meeting, but no action will take place, at least not at this time.
