Wausau sets restrictions on yard sales

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – Wausau will limit how many rummage sales its residents can hold each year to just four.

An ordinance that passed the City Council this week restricts the sales to four days in length and no more than two sales within 30 days of each other.

The Council approved the measure 9-2 to crack down on perpetual sales in some neighborhoods.

Alderman Ed Gale said the ordinance is a disingenuous move considering some people use money from the sales to pay their daily living expenses. He favored the city’s policy of allowing occasional sales.

But city attorney Anne Jacobson said the measure won’t be that restrictive. She said the ordinance puts Wausau on the same level as other communities around the state, including Merrill, Rhinelander and Green Bay.
