The newly created Article V of Chapter 18 [Yard Sales] of the Code of Ordinances was adopted and approved unanimously on Tuesday, May 28 by the Baxley City Council following a second reading at a meeting of the council. The new ordinance was enacted by the city council due in part to their findings after investigation, discussion and review that unregulated sales of items in yards, parking lots and other locales along public right of way pose a danger to parking and orderly traffic flow with the potential of endangering persons and property. Also the city believes such activity harms legitimate businesses, which own or lease property in the city and pay taxes. The city desires to respond to the adverse effects of such activity so as to protect the health, safety and welfare of the city’s citizens.
