There’s a proposal to make city of Dallas residents pay a $25 fee to hold garage sales.

Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway says cash collected would go towards arts programs, the park and rec department and senior dental services.  “It’s money that’s there, we’re leaving on the table that a fee should be attached.  Not an excessive fee, and I don’t think $25 is excessive.
City officials have thought of charging a five dollar fee, but Caraway says that amount isn’t enough.  He says the 25 bucks would cover the dallas legal limit of two garage sales per year per residence.
