Paris Considers Ordinance Limiting Yard Sales
A proposed ordinance in Paris, Tennessee could put an end to what locals call perpetual yard sales. City Manager Carl Holder says some people were running the yard sales like a business, and it was becoming an eyesore. He says,
“The problem is that very often they simply throw a tarp on them and leave them out there sometimes for weeks or months. So it is the purpose of the ordinance to limit the number of times a year you can have a yard sale…”
Holder says the ordinance would limit people to 6 yard sales a year lasting a maximum of 72 hours. He says people violating the ordinance would be subject to a 50 dollar fine. The second reading of the ordinance will be at the end of this month. Holder says that means the ordinance could go into effect in October.
