Halifax Council mulls yard sale ordinance

SoVaNow.com / October 12, 2010
Halifax Town Council will hold its work session Tuesday, Oct. 12 beginning at 7 p.m. in Town Hall with Council’s regular monthly meeting set to follow the committees’ work session.

At 7:30 Council will host a public hearing on an ordinance to be added to the Town Code dealing with yard sales.

Tht ordinance will include limiting the number of yard sales that residents may hold without payment to four each year, as well as excluding the resale of items brought in from outside areas.

The new ordinance will require that anyone holding a yard sale needs to apply for a permit from the Town and also that no yard sale signs can be posted to utility poles or street signs.

Also two day sales, such as those held on a Friday and a Saturday, will be considered as two sales.

Council is also expected to approve a request to the Virginia General Assembly to amend the town’s charter to allow for municipal elections to be held on the second Tuesday in November rather than on the second Tuesday in May.

The change will mean that the town will elect its council members during the General Elections in November rather than holding municipal elections in May.

Terms of office will begin on Jan. 1 of the following year rather then on July 1.
