Garage sale season is in full swing, ushering in a new headache for Genoa officials.

Illegal garage sale signs are posted on public trees, lawns, utility poles, even the town hall lawn.

Village council on Monday discussed the municipal code that only allows garage sale signs to be posted on private property.

Those vendor signs for roofing and other services littering the boulevards are also illegal.
