Yard Sale Permit


Residents must obtain a permit before conducting a yard sale.

Download a Yard Sale Permit or pick one up from the Finance Office at 134 N. Main Street. The cost of the permit is $5 and is payable by cash, check, or money order. Pay and submit the application at the Finance window in the John W. Byrne Municipal Building, 134 N. Main St.


One sign advertising such sales may be placed on the property of the residence of the person conducting the sale, and two off-site directional signs may be permitted, but only during the hours the sale is actively being conducted.

All signs must be removed at the close of the sale's activities or by the end of daylight, whichever occurs first, each day of the sale. No freestanding signs may be placed in the public right-of-way. 

Please indicate the address of your yard sale on your signs.

The application and permit fee for temporary signs is hereby waived.

Number and Type of Sales Permitted

No more than two sales per year may be held at the premises if occupied by the same family or any family member. No single sale shall be conducted for longer than 72 hours.

Consignment sales are prohibited (no one shall accept or take in for sale any goods from any commercial business or enterprise on a consignment basis for a yard sale).
