San Jose Officials Push for Stricter Fines on Illegal Dumping

A pair of San Jose officials are teaming up to push for a stricter crackdown on illegal dumping across the city.

San Jose City Councilman Sergio Jimenez and Planning Commissioner Rolando Bonilla have proposed an increase and restructuring in the city's fines for illegal dumping that would assess a $10,000 citation for any and all offenses.

Current city law applies a tiered system for fines, starting with $2,500 for a first offense and $10,000 for a third offense. The new proposal eliminates the tiers.
