Village of Bartlett's Ordinance requires that permits be obtained for residential garage sales. The ordinance requires compliance with the following:

Garage Sales may only operate between the 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

No more than three permits shall be issued for garage sales to any one applicant or any one address during any calendar year.

A garage sale may be conducted for a maximum of three consecutive days.

No sign shall be posted within the public right of way** or any Bartlett street or thoroughfare, or on any sign post, utility pole or tree.

No more than two garage sale signs which advertise a residential garage sale may be used provided that:

  • Such signs do not exceed six (6) square feet each.
  • Signs are located with no more than one sign per lot of frontage either on the premises conducting the sale or on other private property with that property owner's permission.
  • Signs are only in place while the garage sale is actually taking place.

Any signs that are put shall be taken down at the completion of the Garage Sale Day by the permitee.

Block or Neighborhood Garage Sales shall be coordinated by one (1) resident who shall provide a list with names, addresses, and phone numbers, all those participating in the sale. Any additional participants not included under the original application are required to obtain their own Garage Sale Permit.

Note: Failure to comply with regulations of the Bartlett Municipal Code (Permits and Sign Regulations) is subject to fines of not less than $10.00 nor more than $50.00.

**The Public Right of Way is described as the area from the sidewalk to the curb, approximately 15 feet, anywhere in Bartlett, also as any street, street corner, all boulevards, all street sign posts, or light poles, etc. It also includes vacant lots unless otherwise noted. Note, it is also illegal to place a sign in a car parked in the right-of-way. Such cars will be ticketed.

I have read the above requirements and I am ready to submit a Garage Sale Permit Application. This application must be submitted three days prior to the garage sale.
