Marshfield considering new regulations on “never-ending” garage sales

MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAU) -- Out-of-control garage sales!  That’s the issue being discussed by city leaders in Marshfield who are looking at regulations on garage sales, especially the ones that never seem to end. Marshfield resident Bob Levendoske says one garage sale near his home has turned into an ongoing “retail” operation. That sale was continuous two weeks and now runs every Wednesday through Saturday, and Levedoske said, “I might be better off having a dental office or a hair salon close to my house than this. There’d probably be less traffic, less noise.” Alderperson Alana Feddick-Goodwin voiced concerns about having too many controls on what people can do on their own property, and thinks existing laws should be used to control the problem before any additional regulations be put in place. The Common Council unanimously referred the issue to the city’s Plan Commission to research existing regulations, and provide suggestions for how to handle the issue. The Plan Commission is are being asked to consider regulations on garage sale signage.
