Garage sales are on the rise during the Nationals and Knoxville City Hall staff are reminding the residents of Knoxville of rules regarding the posting of garage sales signs.
According to city ordinance, garage sale signs are not permitted in public right of way or on public property, such as telephone poles. Signs should be placed back behind the sidewalk so that they are on private property and people posting the signs must have permission from that resident to allow the signs to be there.
Any signs that are placed improperly will removed by city staff.
More information where to place garage sale signs can be found on the city website, www.knoxvilleia.gov.
