Have you seen stray shopping carts?
The California Shopping Cart Retrieval Corporation (CSCRC) was formed in 1993 to create a professional, efficient means of returning shopping carts to grocery stores in Southern California after they are removed from store property.

The Corporation also contracts with over twenty-five municipalities and counties to retrieve shopping carts. CSCRC is dedicated to providing fast, cost-effective cart retrieval to its customers and provides value-added inventory control and reports for its customers so they can monitor costs in real time.
All of its contractors and sub-contractors are insured and licensed to manage risk. CSCRC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the California Grocers Association (CGA).CGA is a non-profit statewide trade association representing approximately 500 retail members operating over 6,000 food stores in California and Nevada and approximately 300 grocery supply companies.

Transparency of city salaries
Because of the recent scandal with the City of Bell and the salaries of their City Council, City Manager, and other officials, a lot of interest has been generated regarding the pay of public officials.
Artesia acknowledges this interest and supports it. Salaries of city officials and employees can be seen on the city website at www.cityofartesia.us/salarycompensation page.
