Australia : Cairns council warns of fines in dengue fight

Via ABC News :

 " The Cairns Regional Council is warning people could be fined up to $22,000 if they do not clear up mosquito breeding sites.

It has issued five public health orders in recent days after finding mosquito larvae in containers of water, and in one case, in the folds of a tarpaulin.
Acting Mayor Terry James says if there is non-compliance, individuals may be fined $550 and corporations up to $2,750, with larger penalties possible if the matter goes to court."
