Last week in Sleepy Hollow, police noted several signs for garage sales had been nailed into the village trees. This occurred on Cortlandt Street (home of the Virgin of Guadalupe tree!) and on North Broadway.
Police removed the signs and pulled out the nails, then they contacted the owner of the signs to advise them of the village ordinances regarding the posting of bills/flyers. (That is, save it for a bulletin board.)
Sleepy Hollow Police report they will monitor these trees for damage.
Meanwhile, the Chamber of Commerce for Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow kindly requested that people please remove their signs after their sales. Tarrytown was certainly overrun with pole paper after their recent Tarrytown-wide yard sale shopping spree.
But might I throw in another suggestion? Use Patch! Every Friday at 2 p.m. we post listings of all the tag sales we can find in the region. Send your listing to firstname.lastname@example.org, or find the article here on Friday and add your sale info into the comments.
The trees, poles, Police and Chamber thank you, as does Patch!
