Garage Sale Application

Garage Sale Information

Any person conducting a garage, basement, house, estate sale, etc. on premises that is zoned for or used for residential purposes must apply for and obtain an occasional sale permit. The sale permit is granted for a maximum of three consecutive days with a general limit of two sales per year per premise. If the residents are moving or vacating the premises, one additional sale is permitted for that year.

Permits cost $5 (effective 10/7/13) and are purchased from the Community and Economic Development Department on the Third Floor at City Hall from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The permit must be obtained before the sale starts and must be prominently displayed at the sale. Signs advertising the sale may only be posted on a stake in the property lawn and must be removed by 6:00 pm on the last day of the permitted sale. No advertising signs are permitted on telephone and light poles, street signs, or any City right of way. A rain date may be obtained by calling 847.391.5380 or 847.391.5370 by Wednesday following the permitted sale dates.
