Permits are required for garage sales
By city ordinance, garage sales, rummage sales, yard sales and other such sales require a city permit. Regulating garage sales prevents the accumulation of unsightly cardboard signs littering streets and utility poles. Permits also prevent those who would otherwise conduct constant garage sales from single family homes, and generally keeps residential areas clean and free of constant heavy traffic.
