City does good job with shopping carts

By From page A8 | February 03, 2014

I just had to write and commend everybody for the quick attention to the stray shopping cart problem in this city. I saw the article in the newspaper last week and cut it out so I could use it whenever I see carts littering the streets and park.

I walk my dog over at Dover Park every day and there have been up to eight carts in that park at one time. There were three there when I went; one was in the water upside-down and it had been there a month! I sent an email to the retrieval website and all three were gone the next day. Wow.

Kudos to all of you. Thank you.

    The layout of Dover Park is not at all conducive to "urban campers"... so it would be difficult to believe that any significant shopping cart problem would be caused by the "homeless". But Dover Park is right next to plenty of low-income, section 8 housing. Obviously residents of subsidized housing are stealing property belonging to a nearby business and dumping the carts when they get near their subsidized home. If any of these thieves had shoplifted a six-pack of beer or a handful of candy (much less value than a shopping cart), the cops would come out, take a report and arrest them on a cite or, if it's their umpteenth time, take them to jail. But today the crook is the victim... and the stolen property is just an abandoned nuisance. And this upside-down view of the world is supported and codified by your local "leaders". What a world.
