Milwaukee shopping cart resolution passes committee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee grocery stores could soon be facing big fines for allowing shopping carts to leave their property.

A resolution passed the city's public safety committee. It will now move to the Common Council for a full vote on February 6.

If passed, it would fine owners and people who remove or allow shopping carts to be taken away from stores.

Fines would start at $50 a cart with a maximum penalty of up to $250 a year, depending on the number of carts retrieved.
