$25 Fee For Garage Sales Suggested

View Comments

If some Dallas leaders get their way, City Hall could get some of the proceeds from your next garage sale.  Two City Council members have proposed charging a 25-dollar fee to anyone who wants to have a garage sale in city limits.  A five-dollar fee has been mentioned before cut council members Delia Jasso and Dwaine Caraway are circulating a memo suggesting that charging 25-dollars for a permit could generate a half-million dollars of revenue in Dallas which faces chronic budget issues.  Caraway says it would also permit the city to track those who try to exceed the city’s maximum of two garage sales per year.
