I agree with Darlene Guzman regarding fire hazards on the wooden docks. I have witnessed many people dropping burning cigarette butts on wood surfaces, dry or wet. Her assessment of possible consequences of lost real estate and merchandise is very real.

I would think that butt cans of sand be placed in many convenient locations where fire is a definite possibility might be an affordable and a practical attempt to lessen the threat of a serious fire. But, who am I to propose this? I'm not an elected official.
