DEARBORN – With spring just around the corner, the city wants to ensure that people are aware of some of the rules regarding hosting garage sales.
A permit must be obtained from the City Clerk’s Office in order to host a garage sale, and it is valid for up to three consecutive days.
Residents may hold a maximum of four garage sales per year. The cost is $10 for the first permit, $15 for the second, $20 for the third, and $25 for the fourth within the same calendar year.
Garage sale hosts and customers must wear a mask over their mouth and nose, and must social distance to the extent possible.
Hosts should be aware of their Public Service Day while hosting a garage sale, as it may cause parking issues for potential customers who may not know that it is that neighborhood’s Public Service Day.
