HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A new bill being heard at the city council on Wednesday would increase the fine for illegal dumping by 500 percent.

The fine would jump from $500 to $2,500.

Councilmembers Kymberly Marcos Pine and Ron Menor say they introduced bill 24 on behalf of residents whose sidewalks are a mess.

They're also encouraging anyone who sees illegal dumping to call 911.
