If you urinate in public in Dewey Beach, be prepared to pay a hefty fine.

The current fine for public urination in Dewey is $50. But the Dewey Beach Mayor and Council is currently discussing raising the fine to $200.

Dewey Beach Police tell WBOC-TV that public urination is a problem in the resort that is known for its summer "nightlife."

Dewey Police Sergeant Cliff Dempsey says he hopes the increase in the fine will help deter the public urination trend.
