Fine Could Increase for Public Urination in Dewey Beach

Posted:

DEWEY BEACH, Del.- The fine for public urination in the Town of Dewey Beach might quadruple ahead of next summer.

According to Dewey Beach officials, the Town Council is discussing an increase of the public urination fine from 50 to 200 dollars. The fine was originally higher, but was lessened when public urination was downgraded from a criminal to civil offense.

Dewey Police Sgt. Clifford Dempsey says public urination is a problem in the town. He is hopeful the fine increase will help curb the public urination trend.
