City Council Takes Action on Abandoned Shopping Carts
The City Council on
Oct. 16 approved an ordinance dealing with stray shopping carts. Peoria acted in
conjunction with state law, which holds retailers responsible for wayward carts.
A new technician in the city’s Code Compliance Office will round up abandoned
carts for impound. Retailers must retrieve them within three days to avoid a
fine. After three days, they will pay $30 plus an additional $5 per day.
