Garage Sale Ordinance Requires Permit


Irving, Texas. May 19, 2009 – Effective May 1, Irving residents conducting a garage sale without a permit are subject to a citation without a warning notice being issued first, per previous department policy.

The requirement to obtain a permit is part of a city ordinance, Chapter 49, passed in October 2005, which also states that garage sales cannot exceed 72 consecutive hours, and that only two garage sales are permitted per address per calendar year.

Outlined in the ordinance is also regulation concerning signage. Signs advertising garage sales may only be placed on public property from noon Friday to noon the following Monday.

Garage sale permits are free of charge and can be obtained from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at City Hall, 825 W. Irving Blvd. in the Planning and Inspections Department.
