I Hate Those Butts And I Cannot Lie

Not sure what appropriate enforcement is, but I am often quite surprised by the willingness of some smokers, people who would never litter otherwise, to just chuck their cigarettes everywhere.

Be careful the next time you put out your cigarette in West Chester. If you don't find an ashtray that butt could cost you 100 bucks.

West Chester Borough Council is holding a public debate Wednesday night to consider adopting an ordinance that would establish a $100 minimum fine for "discarding in public places any cigarette butts or other tobacco materials."
