MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — An extra charge for using a paper or plastic bag could be coming to Minneapolis.

The Minneapolis City Council is considering an ordinance that would add a five-cent charge to one-time-use bags.

It would affect both paper and plastic bags at grocery stores and other retailers.

The council is holding a public hearing at Minneapolis City Hall at 1:30 p.m. Monday.

Minnesota prohibited cities from banning plastic bags in 2017.
