Councillor Sheldon Bossert is hoping to shake up how garage sales are advertised in the Fort.
The councillor posted on social media asking residents if they would be in favour of a centralized bulletin board for garage sale advertisements.
"If we had a place where we could put an actual community garage sale board, people would just post it there and people would come by, take a quick picture, write a few things down and go about their garage-saleing," explained Bossert.
The City of Camrose has a similar program that also bans signs placed elsewhere.
Currently, garage sale postings clutter up by the road, slowing traffic down as motorists attempt to quickly read the sign.
Bossert's post on social media is gaining plenty of support. A popular option, in his mind, would be to use a small section of the old hospital grounds to place the sign. The board would be cleared of old signs by a city worker or the person that posted the sign themselves.
"I think it's worth giving it a try, you never know until you try, it's a low-cost thing and it might actually have some benefits so you can't lose."
He's aiming to introduce the notice of motion at the next council meeting after the summer break.
