Yard sale rules: no more than three per year, no signs on telephone poles

  NEWS-LEDGER – SEPT 28, 2011 –

Larry Brooks, West Sacramento’s code enforcement officer, reminds the public that the rules regarding holding a garage sale in West Sacramento changed in 2009. The city council had adopted an ordinance it hoped would limit the blight of homemade signs and inconvenience to neighbors posed by some households which held a lot of such sales.
“The ordinance. . . restricts the number of yard sales per household to no more than three per calendar year,” said Brooks. In addition, the regulation makes it illegal to place signs on street posts, telephones and in the public right of way. Signs are only allowed at the location of the yard sale.”

Violators may be cited. To report a violation, call 617-5001.
