St. Paul City Council rejects ban on non-compostable food takeout containers

The proposed ban on non-compostable or non-recyclable to-go packaging failed on a 5-2 vote. Council President Russ Stark and Council Member Amy Bredmoen cast the sole votes in favor of the ordinance, which Stark had supported for months.
