Recently the City of Wauchula has received several complaints regarding illegal garage sales being conducted within the city limits of Wauchula. As a friendly reminder, Section 9-5 of the City of Wauchula Code of Ordinances states "No garage sale shall be conducted unless and until the individuals desiring to conduct such sale shall obtain a permit therefor from the City Clerk. Members of more than one residence may join in obtaining a permit for a garage sale to be conducted at the residence of one of them. The City Clerk shall collect from the applicant a fee of $5.00 upon issuing the permit." Additionally, Section 9-9 states that "No more than three permits may be issued to a person or for a site during any calendar year." If you are found to be conducting a garage sale without obtaining the proper permit you will be required to terminate the sale until proper permitting is obtained during normal business hours.
