KITCHENER —
While some members questioned the need to get involved, the kidina committee chose a charter to ask the store to prevent the cart from going astray. Coun.
John gozola field receives several phone calls every month asking questions about shopping carts that end up in ditches or are packed with sidewalks or City Boulevard.
He asked the city staff to see if there was anything the city could do to make sure that the carts were left in the shop, not on the messy city streets.
On Monday, Parliament agreed with him and instructed city staff to draft a charter to give the city some legislative authority to deal with problem cars.
But members disagree on how big the trolley is. Coun.
Bill jonidis noted that the city usually receives more than a dozen complaints about abandoned carts every year.
If most retailers are already managing their shopping carts responsibly, he says, \"Why should we consider this?
I don\'t know, 11 complaints (in 2016)
When you look at how many shopping carts are available in the city, it doesn\'t look much.
\"The city may have received 11 complaints, but there are shopping carts everywhere,\" Coun said . \". Zyg Janecki.
\"I saw them in the ditch, in our green space and in the park.
\"He wanted to know why the store was reluctant to make charges against those who removed the trolley from the store, when they seemed willing to arrest the pickpocket for stealing items worth far less than the cart, the price of the shopping cart is about $500 to $700.
An example tries to strike a balance.
The retailer will be responsible for coming up with a way to keep their shopping cart on their property, and the city will not ask the store to take expensive measures such as locking the wheel or coin storage system on the trolley.
Only when abandoned carts are an ongoing problem at a particular location will the city be involved.
The retailer must then provide the charter officer with a written plan on how it manages the cart and retrieve it when it leaves the property.
If the plan is not met, a fine of up to $10,000 will be imposed.
\"What we\'re trying to do is make the smallest possible impact on those retailers that have already done well,\" said Gloria MacNeil, the city\'s law enforcement director.
Gazzola urged the city to ask retailers to submit their plans to the city so that members and others can see what each store is doing to keep their shopping carts on their property, to find those who go astray.
\"I don\'t think it\'s a heavy job,\" said Gazzola . \".
\"They have to come up with a plan anyway.
We just asked to file it so we could follow up.
But the vote was rejected.
\"Why go through the extra steps of creating requirements for places where there is no problem? \" said Coun. Paul Singh.
\"It makes no sense.
\"City staff would like a draft charter to be submitted to the Council in a few weeks.
\"At the same time, I encourage people to call abandoned shopping carts to our corporate contact center and we will continue to respond to them as always,\" MacNeil said . \".
The bylaws staff will also contact city retailers to let them know that bylaws are being worked out and what they expect from them.
