Garage Sales

Spring and Summer are the time of year for yard and garage sales.  It is illegal to place signs of any type, including those for yard sales, on boulevards, lamp posts, sidewalks or other City property.  Your best advertising is still your local newspaper.  Garage Sale signs are to be placed on your own private property for location identification.

City of Yorkton Sign Regulations Bylaw #16/2003 states the following:

  • No advertisement shall be permitted which is attached to a fence, pole, tree, or any object in a public street or place.
  • No advertisement shall be permitted which is attached to or standing on the ground in any public street or place.

Signs in violation of this bylaw will be picked up at owner’s expense.
