Holly Springs To Consider Garage Sales Regulations

The Holly Springs will consider implementing new rules to regulate garage sales during its meeting on Thursday.

The Holly Springs City Council will consider approving new regulations on garage sales during its meeting tonight.

The meeting will start at 7 p.m., preceding its 6:30 p.m. work session, at Holly Springs Municipal Court. The meeting was rescheduled to Thursday due to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday on Monday.

If approved, the regulations would: 

  • allow no more than four sales to occur on the same lot or premises during any 12-month period;
  • Stipulates a period of at least six weeks must pass before another sale may occur at the same lot or premises;
  • limits sales to more than three consecutive days;
  • limits sales to the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.;
  • require anyone wishing to hold a garage sale to apply for a permit at no cost at Holly Springs City Hall(each permit, available at no charge, would be valid for seven days and no permit can be issued to the same applicant more than four times per year);
  • requires all parties participating in multi-family garage sales to separately apply for permits;
  • stipulate that multi-family garage sales would count as one sale for each family and/or residence participating; and
  • prohibits the sale of fireworks, hazardous material, firearms and ammunition.

I like that a permit wouldn't cost the homeowner anything, but is it fair to limit homeowners to only 4-times per year? I would think 6-times per year to be more fair... afterall - what's the purpose of OWNING property if you are constantly told how to operate it? When banks can illegally take homes from people and governments can regulate you to death... what's the purpose of owning? I realize that regulation is supposed to keep the wackos in line but it doesn't seem to be working to do anything more than hinder the non-wackos!
