In his letter Great Barrington Selectboard Chair Steve Bannon writes: “The selectboard did vote to delay the ticketing process for violations of the bylaw until May 2020, for several reasons correctly listed by the Berkshire Women’s Action Group.”
Selectboard Chairman Steve Bannon said he could not support enforcement of the bylaw until there is an implementation and funding plan for the series of water stations that are planned to help consumers refill the reusable bottles.
In their letter to the editor, members of the Environment Committe of the Berkshire Women Action Group write: “We are also compiling answers to questions people have about the stations and the GB on Tap program.”
Forty businesses and organizations have signed off on the Great Barrington proposal. There are some high-profile businesses on the list, including Guido’s, Prairie Whale and Soco. Most recently the Berkshire Co-op Market came on board.
