PlasticBagSurvey.pngWe want to hear from you!  A number of residents have requested that Nevada County consider a single-use plastic bag ban.  Before proceeding with any action related to a bag ban, Nevada County is interested in assessing the effect of a plastic bag ban on the businesses in the unincorporated area.  Please take a short online survey and provide us with your input.
