GARAGE SALE REGISTRATION
New rules for garage and yard sales were adopted in January and will become effective April 27. These sales are now limited to four per year per address in residential districts. They are required to take place any time between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Garage sales must be registered with the city no later than three business days in advance of the first day of the sale. Each garage sale may last up to three consecutive days. To register after April 27, call (941) 486‐2626, ext. 28004. No fee is required.
Signs for garage and yard sales are also regulated. Garage sale signs may not be illuminated and may not exceed a maximum area of 4 square feet. One sign may be placed along the street at the place where the sale is being held and up to four other signs may be placed in the city right‐of‐way between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. each day of the sale.
