WALLA WALLA, Wash. -- The owner of Inland Octopus in downtown Walla Walla will be fined $100 per day starting Thursday, for each day the controversial giant octopus mural remains on the building.

City leaders issued a notice of civil violation to store owner, Bob Catsiff stating that the mural on the front of the store is a continuing violation of the sign code. Inland Octopus is now considering the next step to halt the city's violation.
