TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Does bottled water clash with cherries?
In Traverse City, Mayor Michael Estes is proposing a ban on disposable bottles. He wants any city festival sponsor to provide reusable bottles that could be filled for free at water stations.
The mayor says empyt water bottles are commonly found on the ground, on the beach or in bushes during the National Cherry Festival, the city's major summer attraction.
Estes says there's no "sin" in people bringing their own containers, especially if they can fill them with water for free. City commissioners will discuss the issue Monday. The executive director of the National Cherry Festival says a ban on disposable water bottles would be a "pretty extreme step."
