The mayor of Hawkesbury wants to get tough on trash.

At the May 27 council meeting, Mayor Paula Assaly introduced a notice of motion requesting that an increase be considered on the littering fine in the town.

Currently, the fine for littering in Hawkesbury is $253.75 and that amount includes the administrative court fees, according to Clerk Christine Groulx. The fine amount has not changed since the by-law was first approved by council in 1989.
