WATER CONSERVATION TIPS:
To save water . . . consider turning off any automated sprinkler systems you may have during or in anticipation of rain storms. Also, consider reducing the number of days you water, and the amount of time spent watering during cool weather and/or rainy season of the year.
MANAGEMENT SERVICES DEPARTMENT:
YARD SALES: Temple City residents wanting to conduct a yard sale MUST have a permit. They are available from the receptionist desk at City Hall, 9701 Las Tunas Drive, during normal business hours, which are Mon.-Thurs. 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. City Hall is closed on Fridays. The permits are FREE, and residents may only conduct one yard sale within a six-month period.
FREE YARD SALE ADVERTISING: If you get your yard sale permit by Thursday noon (or earlier) the week prior to the sale (i.e. about nine days prior to your sale), you’ll get the sale listed in that week’s Temple City Tribune newspaper in the “Temple City Spotlight” section for free. The Temple City Tribune comes out every Monday, and is available at many popular locations throughout Temple City.
