At Monday night's meeting City Council voted to move the annual City-wide Garage Sale to the 3rd weekend of May in hopes of warmer and drier weather. Traditionally the sale has been held on the 1st weekend in May and very often the cold or rainy conditions have put a damper on the event. 
This year's 4 day City-wide Garage Sale will be held Thursday, May 14th through Sunday, May 17th. No permit is required for this popular annual event.
May 14th will be here before you know it, so get busy sorting and pricing your items. This year's Sale will be bigger than ever!
Any leftover, unwanted items, large or small can be put out on your next regularly scheduled trash day.


The City of South Lyon is currently accepting applications for election inspectors (poll workers). As an election inspector, you will be serving your community by protecting voter rights, promoting transparency in government and ensuring the election process is open, accurate and fair.
An election inspector must be a U.S. citizen, Michigan resident, registered voter, and cannot be a challenger, candidate, immediate member of a candidate's  family or a convicted felon. Poll workers must submit an election inspector application and complete training prior to working an election.
It is important to have a strong attention to detail, effective communication skills and the ability to sit/stand for long periods of time. Polls are open
from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.; election workers report at 6:00 a.m. and work until as late at 11:00 p.m. Poll workers are provided breakfast and dinner, an hourly wage and paid training.
Please contact Dawn or Lisa at 248-437-1735 for more information.
We want YOU to be a part of the democratic process!
