Abandoned Shopping Carts
At a recent council meeting interest was expressed about options for regulating shopping carts which are removed from a business owner's premises and abandoned in the city. City staff will present a report on this issue, state law and options for regulation on a local level.
The city says: "Califoria's legislature has declared the retrieval of shopping carts by local government agencies to be a matter of statewide concern. The reduction in shopping cart inventory through theft is not only a financial concern to the business, but the sight of abandoned carts throughout the community reduces its visual appeal, sends a message of neglect to the community and lowers property values."
