MUNISING — A warning was issued today by Sgt. Clarence Miller, commander of the Munising State Police post, and Robert Lockwood, county superintendent of roads, concerning the littering of highways with rubbish, garbage, and glass.
“Those people who continue this practice will be punished to the fullest extend of the law,” Miller said. Littering the highways with rubbish is very costly, as county crews must be sent out to clean up those areas, he pointed out.
“The penalty for littering the highways is punishable with a 90-day jail sentence or a $100 fine or both. Under Public Act 27, which was passed in 1954, any person who dumps or deposits filth or refuse on the grounds of another shall be guilty of a misdemeanor,” Alger County area residents were reminded by the two men.
