The Cotton family was one of only about a dozen homes that obtained the mandatory $15 permit for that particular day. While the Cottons followed the city ordinance pertaining to yard sales, not all do. In just a mile radius of East Avenue to Main Street the Turlock Journal discovered three unpermitted sales on that same day.
