Based on the success of events in surrounding cities, Monett will host a city-wide garage sale in April.
City officials granted the Chamber of Commerce permission to hold the event on April 26, the last Saturday of the month.
There will be a fee to participate and have a listing on the map that will be distributed on sale day to residents and out-of-town visitors. Jeff Meredith, Monett Chamber of Commerce president, who proposed the project, said the sale has been modeled after city-wide sales in Neosho, Carthage, Aurora and Carl Junction. Only in Carl Junction is the city-wide event run by the Chamber.
"The money raised will be used to promote the sale in the media," Meredith added.
The Chamber will still sponsor the 100-mile yard sale held around the Labor Day weekend, Meredith said.
