San Luis Obispo city staff will move forward with plans on how to implement a Styrofoam use ban, should the council vote to approve one down the road.
A special one hour public meeting of the City Council was held Wednesday afternoon. Several members of the public spoke in favor of banning Styrofoam—or polystyrene—at the meeting.
City leaders described it as a "study session." Four out of the five city council members agreed to direct staff to continue working on the issue.
Councilman John Ashbaugh supports the strongest possible version of a ban.
