At Thursday night’s Mansfield City Council meeting, City Attorney Matt Ketcham presented members with information regarding an ordinance that would regulate yard sales within the city.
The ordinance would require permits for yard sales, which would have to be obtained through city hall. The council discussed charging for the permits, but Ketcham advised against it saying it would “be a nightmare to keep track of.”
Reasons for the ordinance include the city’s ability to track the locations of the sales and to ensure that the signs are taken down in a timely manner. “If not,” added Ketcham, they can be fined.

  1. The city has already made places in town off limits for yard sales, don’t make people have to pay get permits for yard sales . That would also hinder some sales as fundraisiers ! Fines for not removing signs in a timely manor is fair!
