SEC. 7-167.  ABANDONED SHOPPING CART.
   (A)   When a shopping cart is left standing on any public or private property, the shopping cart shall be deemed to be abandoned and to constitute a public nuisance.  This subsection shall not apply to shopping carts left standing on the private property of the owner of the shopping cart, as such owner is identified by the sign affixed to the shopping cart as required by section 7-170.
   (B)   If a shopping cart is left standing on any public or private property or if the shopping cart does not bear the sign required by section 7-170, the owner of the shopping cart shall be responsible and liable for the costs of removal and storage of the abandoned shopping cart.
   (C)   The city manager may exempt a shopping cart owner from the provisions of subsection (B) of this section if the shopping cart owner has implemented a plan whereby the shopping cart owner's employees retrieve shopping carts, or whereby the shopping cart owner has entered into a contract with a shopping cart retrieval service and has provided the city manager with proof of such contract, provided the frequency of the shopping cart retrieval service is satisfactory to the city manager.
