SUMMARY AS PASSED SENATE: (all summaries)

Abandoned and stolen shopping carts; local regulation. Provides that any locality in Planning District 8 may, by ordinance, provide that it is unlawful for any person to place, leave, or abandon on any real property in the locality, or within specified districts within the locality, any shopping cart. The bill requires such ordinance to provide that any such shopping cart that remains on the real property after a notice of violation is given to the owner of such shopping cart shall be presumed to be abandoned and subject to removal from the real property by the county or its agents without further notice. In the event that any such shopping cart is so removed, the cost of removal, including the cost of disposal, shall be charged to the owner of the shopping cart. The bill also authorizes such ordinance to prohibit possession of a shopping cart outside of the designated premises when the owner has posted notice of such prohibition. Such ordinance may provide for a civil penalty of not more than $500.
