Lots of money, money, money on the streets of Glendale, on the
sidewalks, on people’s lawns, in people’s driveways, in the alleys and
hidden in backyards.
Last Monday I took a short drive through the city of Glendale and
attempted to count the shopping carts that were removed from markets and
illegally disposed of on other people’s property. After I counted 1,000,
I quit and went home. The city had $100 per cart, if they would start
issuing tickets for the removal of these carts. That’s more than $100,000
just for Monday night. Can you imagine how much the city would collect in
one week if it enforced these laws?
The city is not supposed to feel sorry for these persons who illegally
remove and litter our streets and sidewalks with shopping carts. They are
all old enough to understand the rules and regulations of this city.
Some of our streets have signs posted that say “Neighborhood Watch.”
These signs should be changed to say “Neighborhood Catch.” That way,
maybe the people who watch these persons with the carts will help and try
to catch these persons instead.
