8.52.070 Disposition of abandoned and unclaimed shopping carts.
Any shopping cart found upon any public street, sidewalk, or right-of-way in violation of this chapter may be removed to a place of storage by the village.
(a) Unidentified Shopping Carts. Any shopping cart removed from any public street, sidewalk or right-of-way not bearing a permanent marking or plate identifying its owner shall be deemed abandoned, and may be immediately disposed of by the village.
(b) Identified Shopping Carts. For shopping carts bearing the marking or plate required by Section 8.52.020 removed from any public street, sidewalk or right-of-way by the village, the village shall notify the business owner indicated in the marking or plate of its removal and storage, and:
(i) There shall be a removal charge of ten dollars, payable to the village; and
(ii) There shall be a storage charge of one dollar per day, commencing on the tenth day after removal by the village, payable to the village.
Any identified shopping cart not claimed and removed by its owner, the business owner of the premises in connection with which the shopping cart is intended to be used, within thirty days of its removal from a public street, sidewalk or right-of-way by the village, shall be deemed abandoned, and may be disposed of by the village. Such disposition shall not relieve the responsible parties from any liability under this chapter or otherwise. Any amount received by the village, however, shall be credited against any removal or storage charges outstanding.
