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.....
