ALACHUA CO, Fla. (WCJB) - Alachua County residents may face new dining changes when going out to eat.

Tuesday, the county commission will consider adopting a ban on plastic straws.

The City of Gainesville already banned single-use plastic straws at the beginning of the year.

The proposed ordinance would go into effect at any place providing drinks, with an exception in medical facilities like hospitals.
