Each side of town will have two Saturdays in which they can hold their garage sales. If sellers want to sell on only one of the two days or both days, they will be allowed to (no City permit required). If someone elects to sell on the first day and closes due to rain, they can still sell on the second day. If someone elects to sell only on the second day and closes due to rain, they can always get a garage sale permit for another day. All residences are allowed three regular sales per year with a permit. It will be each seller's perogative as to what they want to do. This will also allow people to sell and shop in their own side of town if they like, as well as the other side of town.
The sales will be held on their respective Saturday from 7 am - 3 pm for these days only. If you want to hold a sale on a date other than your respective side of town, you will need to obtain a permit from City Hall (no charge).
For those that don't know, and a reminder to those that do know, the City is divided into the following two sections for sales:
- East of Brown Road (including homes on the East side of Brown Road) will hold their sales on the first and Second Saturdays in June (June 3rd & 10th).
- West of Brown Road (including homes on the West side of Brown Road) will hold their sales on the third and Fourth Saturdays in June (June 17th & 24th).
This Year's Sign Up Will Be Different Than Last Year's........ Unfortunately, at this point in time residents will not be able to sign up on the City's website. We've been working towards a new sign up process with our new website, however, as of this writing we have not been able to develop one that will work efficiently. So, if you would like to sign up for this year’s sale you can do it one of two ways:
1) If you do not want a sign for your yard, you can call City Hall (427-8700, 3#) and give us your name, address and phone number OR
2) If you do want a sign for your yard, you will need to sign up in person at City Hall and then we can add you to the list as well as give you a sign for your yard.
At noon on each Thursday prior to a sale, the City will create a list of those who have signed up and have it ready for the public on Friday morning. The list will also be posted on the City's website for the public to access.
We apologize for the inconvenience this year’s process may cause you but rest assured we are working on developing something that will work more efficiently for future sales. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact City Hall at 314-427-8700, ext. #3.
!! GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SALES !!
