Yard Sales

It's that time of year when homeowners open their doors and garages to host  annual yard sales.  

Now Sussex County Council wants to put an end to one particular resident's twice-monthly yard sale. 

Did you know that county regulations consider yard sales "special events," and you can only have three a year on the same property? 

The Muellers have been holding regular yard sales on their property on Route 24 near Longneck for years.   They applied for a conditional-use permit from the county to hold more than three yard sales a year and were denied. 

Complaints from neighbors about people parking on the side of the road and related parking issues seem to be part of the reason for the permit denial.
