Democracy? Isn't that the system of governance where large corporations get to sell any sh*tty polluting littering utterly wasteful product they want? Then the taxpayers get the tab for cleanup? What's next? Paint in a spray can? Permanent ink pens with really wide tips? Water in plastic bottles?

The council still has time to pass an ordinance legalizing the shooting of people who spray silly string and hair coloring.

Seriously, hair coloring?  WTF's wrong with those kids?

FTFA  Jail inmates will do the cleanup this year, says KYUK.

Why the flying fark are people not expected to clean up after themselves?

also... The proposal was first brought before the council May 28th.  According to the ordinance, the hair coloring spray stains wood and clothing and the cleanup is costly.

All the inmate labor programs I've ever seen require at least one supervisor and a van for transport and a special hat or vest for the inmates to wear while doing their work. And I wasn't necessarily referencing only this one event.

I suppose I wasn't disputing your claim, but rather pissy about the fact that they are encouraging people to not clean up their own damn mess.

Years ago, I overheard some mom at a street festival telling her kid it was okay to drop trash on the ground because "somebody gets paid to clean it up." Job Creators (tm) work in mysterious ways, no?

I hope they act irresponsibly with their new found freedom.

Because they're not going to.  It's not an expectation issue or not, it's simply accepting that a massive crowd will not clean up after itself, and moving accordingly.  Not sure if it falls into 'tragedy of the commons' or simple 'someone elses responsability I'm here to have fun 'merica'.

Keep in mind that Bethel has 6,000 people, qualifying it as a big city by Alaska standards.  Big enough to actually have a jail with inmates.  It's also 400 miles from anywhere else; even the Yukon River says "No, I don't wanna go there".

Just don't spray any cops with it, unless you really want to get beaten to a pulp.
