Residents planning garage sales should be aware of the Village's guidelines on placement of signs. A permit is NOT required to hold a garage sale.
Signs may be displayed for four (4) days but must be displayed only on the days when the sale is actually taking place. A maximum of five (5) signs are allowed to be displayed on the property holding the sale and/or near major intersections on public property.
Please do not place signs on utility poles as this is illegal and unsightly. Balloons, streamers or any other items designed to attraction attention are not allowed to be attached to the signs.
