Our city has worked hard and diligently to clean up the streets of the abandoned grocery carts. Have you noticed how much nicer the streets look? The system is working! Except there are still people behaving badly, and I mean people of all walks of life.
For example, I saw two women nonchalantly walking west on Travis Boulevard with one grocery cart that belonged to Grocery Outlet. Inside the Grocery Outlet cart was one small plastic bag. That single plastic grocery bag appeared to have one item in it.
First, they stole the grocery cart. Second, the city has to round it up after it is reported abandoned. Third, you and I, the taxpayers, will pay to have the service of the city to round it up.
In another incident, I saw a woman pushing a Food Maxx cart loaded with large black plastic bags full of empty cans through a neighborhood. There again, the cart is stolen. If she abandoned the cart and left it on a street near her home, the same routine may happen.
Do we need to have a Stanley Roberts of People Behaving Badly on KRON drive through our streets and talk to these people?
