The Town of Lancaster has a new law on the books covering yard sales.

The new law requires multiple residences that hold a sale of personal property of any kind where the public is invited must obtain a permit from the Town Clerk’s office in Town Hall at 21 Central Ave. at least 10 days before the sale.

Residents of the Villages of Lancaster and Depew are excluded from the town law.

There is no fee for the permit, whose purpose is to help put in place appropriate traffic control and public safety measures the town police force feels is necessary.

This week:
