Penalties for dumping
By Gavin Piercy

Why doesn't the Ketchikan Borough just up the penalty for dumping? They could enact a law that would fine those unwilling to take their trash to the dump by the pound. $250 or 1 day in prison for each pound of trash dumped, rounded up to the nearest pound. Dumping could be littering anything over 1 pound. That would sure make someone reconsider tossing their 100 pound appliances on the side of the road.....
