A push to crackdown on illegal dumping will be discussed at 10 a.m. Wednesday when the Common Council's Finance Committee holds a special meeting in Room 1417 of City Hall.

Some lawmakers have long complained about flagrant violators who turn empty lots and other properties into small mountains of debris. Officials are examining a number of strategies, including stiffer penalties. Some believe the current $1,500 penalty is doing little to deter illegal dumpers.

"For some of these people, $1,500 is a drop in the bucket," said South Council Member Mary M. Martino. "They could care less."
