The City of Hewitt ordinance prevents excessive number of sales at any one property, restricts unnecessary signs and superfluous advertising, and finally, curtails unattractive outdoor display of items for sale. When conducted with concern for neighborhood appearance, yard sales or garage sales should cause no detrimental effect in a neighborhood’s residential quality. By City ordinance no more than FOUR yards sales per 12-month period and for no longer than 3 consecutive days each. Items for sale are limited to personal goods that have not been purchased for resale.
