Barrington conducts survey on bag ban

Barrington town officials want to know what residents think of the community's plastic bag ban.

At the request of the Barrington Town Council, the Conservation Commission is conducting a survey on the impact of the ban.

The ban has a "sunset" provision which means it expires at the end of 2015 unless the council votes to extend it. The vote could depend on the results of the survey.

Flyers went out this week with a link to the poll included.
