Garage Sales

With garage sale season closely approaching the City would like to remind residents that two garage sales per year per residence are allowed. The sales should be limited to 3 days. Adequate parking should be available.
There will be a variety of trees to choose from including Lilacs, Red Maple, and Pollinator Package!
SCAM ALERT

Scammers will call your phone, when you answer you will hear a female crying hysterically. A male subject will get on the phone and tell you that your loved one was "in the wrong place at the wrong time."
They will demand a ransom, and for you to get a money order and/or gift card for the safe return of your loved one.

They will tell you NOT TO CALL THE POLICE or else.

Tips to prevent this from happening to you:
  • Develop a "Family safe word" for verification in emergency situations. DO NOT tell others your family's safe word.
  • DO NOT send money to ANYONE you do not know.
  • Only answer calls from numbers that you know.
  • Three-way call or text your loved one while on the phone with the scammer to see if they are safe.

Please contact us at 815-544-2135 if there are any concerns about the legitimacy of any scam you may encounter.
