Do I need a permit to have a garage sale?

You do not need a permit to have a garage sale on your property. However, if you plan to place signs in the public right-of-way (generally the area between the street and the sidewalk), you do need a permit. The Municipal Administrator's Office has an application for temporary signs in the City Right-of-Way.
