Our city leaders have done it again. They seem to prefer putting the horse in front of the cart.
For years the police have ignored people who “steal” shopping carts. Now all of a sudden it is the market’s fault and they will be fined $75 for each cart.
They will need someone continually searching the city looking for carts. How is the poor market-owner supposed to know one of his carts has ended up on Regatta or in the brush on Heller Road?
Hey, I have an idea. How about when an officer sees someone stealing a cart they arrest them —- it is a crime —- or issue a ticket for littering or a warning or something.
You know those markets produce tax dollars for the city.
The cart thieves do not.
