It is the purpose of this chapter to prohibit the infringement of any business in any established residential area and in so doing to regulate the term and frequency of a personal property sale, such as a garage sale, porch sale, basement sale, yard sale or other similar type of sale, so as not to disturb or disrupt the residential environment of the area.
Any person who wishes to hold a personal property sale, including but not limited to a garage sale, basement sale, porch sale or yard sale, for the resale of used household property, clothing or any personal property items which are owned by the residents of the premises shall obtain a permit therefor from the Village Clerk.
Any permit issued pursuant to this chapter shall be for a term not exceeding two consecutive calendar days. No more than two such permits shall be issued for any premises in any one calendar year.
The permit fee for each garage sale shall be in an amount as established by the Board of Trustees by resolution.
The permit shall be subject to a determination by the Code Enforcement Officer that proper safety and environmental precautions have been taken for the public.
The permit shall be posted on the premises in a conspicuous place.
No signs, posters or other advertising materials shall be placed upon or attached to any public property, including but not limited to lighting poles, telephone poles, or upon public sidewalks or highways.
A police officer or the Code Enforcement Officer shall have the right of entry to any premises when there is probable cause that a sale of personal property is taking place to enforce the provisions of this chapter. Such officers are hereby authorized to issue an appearance ticket for any violation of this chapter and to order that the sale be ended forthwith.
