Starting this summer, residents will need to get permission from the town to hold a yard sale. Town Meeting voted earlier this spring to require permits for the sales. The permits will cost $5, according to Town Clerk/Treasurer Jean Kopke. The new bylaw also limits residents to one sale a month and four a year, she said. Scofflaws face a $25 fine. “The intent is to keep people from having multiple yard sales,” she said. — Johanna Seltz
