Garage & Yard Sale Permits

Garage and yard 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 scan and email a copy of your identification and a completed form to Office@49thWard.org. We will email the approved form back to you.
