At no cost?
So your city sanitation people work for free?
Your landfills don't cost anything to operate or charge per ton?

Unless I'm misunderstanding, the city allows *each house* to hold a garage sale 4x per year, it's not that there are just 4 dates per year that everybody can have one, with none allowed the other 361 days. Every 3 months should be plenty often for a given person to hold one, and there will be many going on any given weekend to collect more stuff from.
Seems a good compromise between allowing an eternal flea market business and prohibiting them altogether.

Why get the city involved in something that could easily be handled neighbor-to-neighbor?
We had a family in a rent-house on our street that put new furniture in their driveway every weekend. They evidently got it from a family member who owned a furniture store and used the busy street access as a marketing tool.
I and two other burly neighbors visited the renter. The conversation went something like:
Us: "We object to your furniture store on our street. We don't like it. We REALLY don't like it. Should you continue being a poor neighbor, we'll have to take steps. Steps you won't like. Steps you REALLY won't like."
There was no more faux garage sale crap on the street and the family moved away shortly thereafter.

Menacing and threatening is a good way to end up in jail, in most towns. Just sayin'.
I have no heartburn with a max 4x per year garage sale rule. After years of living in this town, I recognize many of the addresses in the garage sale ads, they hold so many of them. If I were one of their neighbors, I'd be pissed, too. Overpriced crap in an off-the-books store. I would draw the line at having to pay for permits to hold a sale, though. The broke local govts. have more important things to do.
