Flower pots hang from a balcony in central Madrid, October 10, 2013. Beggars, dog-lovers and fortune-tellers who venture onto Madrid's busy streets may soon find themselves out of pocket as authorities in the city and elsewhere seek creative solutions to their financial problems.The Madrid council laid out plans this week to levy fines of 750 euros ($1,000) for public activities including soliciting for money outside shopping centres, feeding or washing dogs, reading tarot cards and performing acrobatics with a bike. The new proposals in Madrid, which has promised to cut local taxes from 2015, could come into effect later this year. They also include a penalty of up to 3,000 euros ($4055) for placing flowerpots in precarious positions on balconies.REUTERS/Susana Vera (SPAIN - Tags: POLITICS BUSINESS)
