Garage Sale Permits

New updates are in place for residents wanting to have a garage sale. City Council recently approved changes to a number of areas relating to Garage Sale Permits. They include:
  • The 7-day advance period for requesting a permit has been eliminated. The permit may be filed any time prior to the first day of the sale.
  • Two additional signs are permitted off the sale property, as long as they are not in the public right-of-way and that permission is obtained from the property owner where the signs are placed.
  • All signs may be erected the night before the sale.
  • The fee has increased from $2 to $5.
When submitting a permit, residents also have the option to have their event posted on a special Garage Sale Calendar on the City's website. For more information view the City calendar.

The garage sale permit form and new amended ordinance can be viewed and filed with the City Clerk’s office at the Louis J.R. Goorey Worthington Municipal Building, 6550 N. High Street. For more information view the Garage Sale Permit Application (PDF).
