The real problem with litter is the lack of control efforts and
a failure to enforce the available statutory and ordinance prohibitions.
Fines should be raised to a maximum of $1,000.00 and all perpetrators
convicted should be required to perform an hour of public service
for each $100.00 in fines imposed. Public service to consist
of litter pickup endeavors documented by two witnesses. A reward
for notification of litter acts and conviction pursuant thereto
might also be considered.
