DEARBORN – The city now offers a new feature intended to help residents advertise and for anyone interested to locate the garage and estate sales within the city limits. This service is available year-round for sales that also take place indoors.
Sellers have the option of advertising their garage sale on the city’s website for $10. It will be posted in the form of a Google map with the location of the garage sale highlighted and information about the items available.
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.
Public Service Days may cause parking issues for potential customers who may not know that it is that neighborhood’s Public Service Day.
A printable application form can be obtained online at https://tinyurl.com/3fuxt9k7. This form can either be mailed to the Clerk’s Office or dropped off from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
