LETTER: Harrison signage bylaws are unfair

Editor:

A strata in Harrison had a multi-unit garage sale on Saturday. As well as advertising on social media, signs were put up on the nearby streets on Friday in the late morning.

Within an hour of the signs being put up, all were removed by an H.H.S. works employee. When questioned why, he stated that it was a bylaw, no signs, except on private property.

After removing the signs from the back of the H.H.S. pickup truck, we were told, at 1:10 pm, that the signs could go back up in one hour. What he didn’t see, he couldn’t remove.

The employee was doing the job of the bylaw officer, it seemed. I questioned the sign removal at the village office and was told the same thing; that it was a bylaw.

I guess if you want to have a successful garage sale, H.H.S. is not the place to do it. No one will be aware of it unless they drive past your house.
