Richard Miles: Will bag ban affect poop pickup?

I noted with interest that Steamboat Springs City Council is moving ahead with the plastic bag ban. As a non-dog-owning property owner, I wonder if council has considered the unintended consequences of dog walkers not having bags to pick up dog waste.

Most dog walkers I see responsibly pick up after their dogs but what will they use when free plastic grocery bags are no longer available. Will we have an expanded group of irresponsible dog walkers leaving dog waste for property owners to deal with?
