AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A new law means yard sales in Augusta will soon no longer be allowed to last longer than three consecutive days.

The Kennebec Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2gIc74G ) the ordinance passed last week also states properties can’t have more than such sales a year.

Items must be appropriately stored at the end of each yard sale and signs promoting the sale must be removed.

The ordinance goes into effect on Jan. 1.

At-Large Councilor Jeffrey Bilodeau says the law probably won’t be enforced after four and a half days, but says “something” will likely happen if properties have yard sales lasting several weeks.

Councilor Anna Blodgett says she became frustrated that several homes had seemingly never-ending yard sales, some of which had gone on for months or years.
