The West Tisbury selectmen became the second town board this week to back an initiative seeking a ban of single-use plastic bags.

At their meeting Wednesday, selectmen voted unanimously to support a bylaw drafted by the Vineyard Conservation Society. Aquinnah selectmen voted to back the proposal on Tuesday.

Samantha Look, a VCS board member, presented the selectmen with a draft of a new bylaw. She said along with asking for bans in all six towns, VCS plans to begin a campaign promoting reusable bags.

“We intend to do a lot of education and talking to people about it,” she said.

The bylaw will be put before voters at the annual town meeting in April. If it is approved, single-use plastic bags would be banned from stores as well as places like the farmers’ market and artisans fair.

Selectman Richard Knabel predicted little resistance in West Tisbury. Selectman Jeffrey (Skipper) Manter 3rd was also supportive of the ban.

“I think we can lead the way and show that’s what we like to do,” he said.

In other business Wednesday, town accountant Kathy Logue returned to discuss the town property maintenance committee. A charge for the committee was drawn up three weeks ago. Responsibilities include developing a schedule of ongoing maintenance activities, keep inventory of maintenance equipment and materials, managing facilities budgets, developing efficient long and short-term maintenance plans and creating a preventative maintenance schedule for buildings.

It has yet to be decided if the committee will be permanent or temporary.

“We’re trying to get caught up before we fall anymore behind,” Ms. Logue said.

The selectmen agreed to begin soliciting members for the committee. They plan to appoint three or five members who have experience with building maintenance or have served on similar committees.
