Garage sales are a great way to empty the house of unused items and make a little cash, and it is a great way for folks to save some money. Here are a few guidelines outlined in the Property Maintenance Ordinance regarding garage sales:
Only four garage sales are allowed per year.
The garage sale may only be held for a seventy-two (72) hour period.
Only items contained in the home may be sold. Items may not be brought in from off the premise, except from neighboring homes participating in a joint garage sale.
The garage sale times are from 9:00 am to sunset.
One sign is allowed on the site of the sale and one sign off premise at the entrance of the subdivision as long as it is located on private property, with permission of the owner, and not located in the public road right-of-way.
Homeowners holding a garage sale should be alert to traffic obstructions caused by those shopping at a sale.
