The Calimesa, Calif., city council is working on a law to impose tough restrictions on local tag and garage sales, including limits on signs and number of sales per year per residence. Fees may be imposed, and sales could be held only from dawn to dusk on the first weekend of the month.
As reported by the Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Calif., one of the purposes of the law is to make resellers stop selling new products. At a meeting on April 19, community development director Gus Romo said the city is trying to prevent people from re-selling new products they purchase elsewhere.
The Calimesa News Mirror also reported on the debate. The city council has sent the proposal back to committee for revisions.
