Abandoned Shopping Cart Ordinance Goes Before Council
Council will consider a number of proposed code ordinance changes in response to a growing problem with stolen and abandoned carts. Many of these carts are being retrieved by City staff as they are abandoned along the Bear Creek Greenway, public parks and right-of-ways. Prior to presenting these code revisions to Council, staff invited over 50 Medford stores to one of two opportunities to review the proposed ordinance and provide feedback on the impacts to their operation. The feedback obtained in those meetings is reflected in the proposed code ordinance. More details
