§ 100.01 PURPOSE.
   This chapter is adopted pursuant to Cal. Business and Professions Code § 22435.8 and the city's police powers for the purpose of regulating and prohibiting the removal of shopping carts from the premises of retail establishments. Abandoned shopping carts are a public nuisance because they constitute an eyesore, interfere with pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and contribute to blight. Accordingly, they detrimentally affect public health, safety and welfare.
