Do I have to get a permit to have a garage/yard sale?

A permit is required to hold a garage/yard sale within the City Limits. No more than 3 permits may be issued per household or residential location during any calendar year and there must be 30 days between sales at any one location. *Members of more than one residence may join in requesting a permit for a sale to be conducted at the residence of one of them;  however, that permit shall be considered as having been issued for each and all such residences.  Sales are limited between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. for no more than 3 consecutive days. Permits are issued by the Codes Department and must be picked up in person. A processing fee of $2 is required for all permits.  

The City does not provide signage.  If you use your own signage, it is allowed on personal property ONLY.  Do not place yard sale signs on utility poles.

Any person found guilty of violating the terms of this ordinance shall be subject to a penalty of up to $50 plus court costs for each offense. For information please call 931-520-5209.
