Last month the Juneau Empire reported on the new cameras being installed by George Schaaf, the city’s Park and Landscape Superintendent.
Juneau has a multitude of popular dump sites, Schaaf and (Community Services Officer Bob) Dilley said, including in North Douglas, Sunshine Cove, Shane Drive, Allen Court and near the university.
Schaaf says he intends on moving the cameras to various spots so they won’t be in one place too long.
“Wherever we have a problem, we can put them,” he said.
In Juneau, fines for littering start at $200 for the first offense. So far at least six people have been cited because of footage from the cameras.
ADN requested footage from the video cameras and published video of the offending litterers.
