GARAGE SALES: ‘Ordinance needs enforcement’

October 17, 2013

CHURUBUSCO — With Churubusco leaders working on a revised garage sale ordinance, Wayne Yager, a resident, offered an example of why the town needs an enforceable policy.

At Wednesday’s meeting, Yager told Town Council members that he felt the town’s ordinances were not being enforced.

“You need to be doing a better job of enforcing ordinances pertaining to the appearance of the town,” Yager said.

According to Yager, a home on West Whitley Street held a garage sale which lasted for a lengthy period of time.

“How long did that sale go on — two months?” said Yager. “It looked junky. Isn’t there something in the ordinance that deals with the duration of the sale?”

Madalyn Sade-Bartl, the town’s clerk-treasurer, confirmed that the present ordinance is not very specific on length of a sale nor the penalties or procedures for garage sales.
