Yard Sales

Yard sales are a good way to help your community and yourself by recycling your unwanted items.  (WMC Chapter 15.12)

  1. Yard sale fee is $2.00 and has to be paid before the yard sale.  Keep the receipt incase a City Official asks for it.
  2. You are only allowed two (2) yard sales a year at any location lasting no longer than three (3) days.
  3. Advertising yard sales:
    • No posting on a utility pole;
    • No posting a sign on city land
    • No posting on city right-of-way

There is no form that needs to be completed. You just need to give the City Clerk's office the address of the yard sale and the dates of duration when you pay the $2.00 fee.

The City hopes you have a very successful yard sale!
