Any resident planning to hold a garage or yard sale is required to hold a permit. Permits are free and can be obtained from our office. You can hold two sales per calendar year, unless a third sale is needed because you are permanently moving from your residence.
Sales cannot be held for longer than three consecutive days and must be held between 9:00 a.m. and sunset. In case of rain, the permit can be reissued for a later date. If more than one household is joining in a single sale, each household needs its own permit even if the sale is at the address of only one participating household.
Signs advertising the sale may only be posted on the property where the sale is taking place. Violators face fines for posting signs on city property.
Filing for a Permit
- You can stop by our office with proof of residence and identification and fill out the application.
- You can fax a copy of your identification and a completed form to (773) 685-4527. We will fax the approved form back to you. Please remember to provide your fax number.
