IN our rundown of Vincent council candidates last week we mentioned current councillor Jonathan Hallett put up a motion to ban plastic bags locally. That motion was actually moved by mayor Emma Cole in May. Cr Hallett put forward a different motion in August asking council staff to investigate eliminating the city’s use of plastic bags, cups, straws, cutlery and balloons, as well as cutting down on their use at markets, festivals and events where the city hires out its spaces. Also, sorry to photographer Jacqueline Jane van Grootel for omitting her first name on our front page.
