Ordinance seems

unnecessary

I have known Sharon Pohl and Vicki Cheney for many years as conscientious, struggling ladies, trying to make ends meet. In the most recent years, getting older, they are struggling with health problems. To require licenses, etc. would be a hardship. We are all better off keeping busy even if there isn't a lot of money to be had. It helps our sanity and self-worth. The availability of baby items is a minor issue.

We understand that an ordinance is being enforced and Vicki is being fined. We would request that special consideration would be given and limited sales and fine would be waived. We are grateful for your consideration. What difference does it make to the city council if they have more than two garage sales a year! They are not making a lot of money, trying to get rid of excess stuff. It would seem the city council would have far more important issues than controlling how many sales anyone has.
