FORT STOCKTON - Plastic bags will no longer be found at stores in Fort Stockton.

This past March, a citywide ban on all plastic bags was supposed to go into effect.

But the state tried to put a stop to that ban with a law that said it was illegal to ban the bags.

But since the city created the ban before the new law, the city won the right to keep the ban in place.

The ordinance will officially go into effect starting in September.
