Vote Could Ease Garage Sale Rules

The City Council tonight will consider easing regulations on outdoor garage sales, which some residents have criticized as overly restrictive.

Municipal codes allow residents just one garage sale a year and require a $10 permit fee.

The proposal under consideration would allow as many as three garage sales in a 12-month period and eliminate the permit fee. Each sale could last up to three days, with hours limited from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Officials said the proposal would make Westminster's codes more like those of surrounding cities, which generally allow two to four garage sales a year for each residence.

The council meets at 7 p.m. in the chambers at 8200 Westminster Blvd.
