By  | 

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -- Gainesville City Commissioners will be discussing a proposed plastic straw ban at a meeting scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

This comes days after governor Ron DeSantis vetoed a bill that would have prevented plastic straw bans.

Gainesville currently plans to place a ban on plastic bags that will take effect in January of next year.

The hearing will take place at 1:30pm at the City Hall Auditorium.
