Vegreville Council does not support garage sales

Author: Kaleb Brink Posted on: Jul 16, 2020

At the Legislative Committee Meeting on July 14, Town Council discussed the impact of garage sales in Vegreville. Garage sales promote physical closeness and have numerous touch surfaces that can not be adequately sanitized. The Town of Vegreville is unable to ensure garage sales operate safely and is unable to provide resources to ensure they’re effectively monitored. To protect the health and safety of residents, Town Council urges residents to utilize online platforms for buying and selling goods instead of hosting in-person events.

Town Council does not support garage sales and urges residents to become familiar with the Public Health Orders and recommendations from Public Health Officials. COVID-19 is still very real, and we must all do our part to ensure the safety of ourselves and those around us. There will not be repercussions for those who decide to host garage sales in Vegreville.
