This video of the City Council has the issue and vote on the bag ban. Unfortunately, the hours long video will need to load so you can jump to the bag ban segments.
- Public testimony on the ban occurs at minute 11:30. Then the Council moves to other business.
- The Council returns to the bag ban issue, and votes to adopt ban, beginning at minute 2:59:20 (yes, at 2 hours, 59 minutes)
Someone at the Issaquah Press article commented that “ issaquah is not a referendum/petition driven city”.
Just to clarify …
The City of Issaquah does support / allow referendum of ordinance, according to City Code 1.12.010. See this link to code …
So valid signatures on our petition will count toward getting the bag ban ordinance on the next municipal ballot, for a vote of the people.
A valid signature is a resident of Issaquah registered to vote.
