Do I need a permit to have a garage sale?

No. Garage sales may be held a total of 4 times a year, and only merchandise belonging to the owner may be sold. A single garage sale may extend a maximum of 3 consecutive days. Signs shall not be erected more than 1 day in advance of a proposed sale. Garage sale signs shall be promptly removed by sunset on the last day of the sale.

Garage sale signs may not be attached to any traffic or parking control device, tree, street light or utility pole, or placed so as to obstruct public sidewalks. Signs should be placed on a stake and placed into the ground. The signs may be no larger than 3 square feet in area and no taller than 4 feet in height.

Note: Signs posted illegally will be removed.
