[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Fishkill 8-8-1977 by L.L. No. 2-1977. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Any sale of merchandise sold from the premises or property in a residential zone, whether it is indoors or outside, shall be considered a garage sale, tag sale or yard sale.
The following regulations shall apply to garage sales, tag sales and yard sales:
A three-day nonrenewable permit (permit of use) will be required for conducting a garage sale, tag sale or yard sale. A permit must be reapplied for each time a garage sale, tag sale or yard sale is held. Such permit shall only be valid for a maximum of three consecutive days.
[Amended 1-19-2010 by L.L. No. 2-2010]
Merchandise bought for the express purpose of resale is prohibited.
There shall be a limit of two garage sale, tag sale or yard sale permits per year.
Sales shall be between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. only.
The permit is automatically revoked should the Village of Fishkill police, senior officer in charge or a Village official state in writing that the garage sale, tag sale or yard sale is creating an unsafe traffic condition.
In the event the application for a permit is made by a tenant of the premises (rather than the owner), such application shall require the written permission of the owner.
