This prompted Surfrider Foundation and many other environmental groups to send this letter to the Township Clerk, mostly about the undemocratic process of holding in-person meetings and hearings at a time like this.
Please take a minute to email the Mayor at the very least and possibly the other Council members as well. Mayor Greg Myhre’s email info is here GMyhre@staffordnj.gov

Naturally, the state plastic bag ban will go into effect in May, 2022 which makes this change all the more ridiculous. To change to a bag law, then to repeal that bag law, and then to go back to a bag ban in 17 months is enough to make your head spin.
Let’s make sure they hear from those of us who think banning plastic bags was a good idea in the first place. Please email those elected leaders in Stafford Township.
