Garage sale permits are available at the Receptionist Desk located on the first floor of Town Hall (100 West Eldorado Parkway) Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Friday 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Garage Sale Permits can also be purchased online using a credit card here.
After purchasing, you can go to the Little Elm Public Library or Little Elm Recreation Center with their receipt to exchange for five garage sale signs.
During regular business hours, residents can visit the Permitting Department in Town Hall to purchase Garage Sale Permits in person or redeem their receipt.
The fee is $10.00 (cash or check) and includes five (5) signs that meet our specifications. The permit may only be obtained by an adult occupant of the property where the garage sale will be conducted, or their designated representative. Proof of ownership or occupancy may be verified by the Town by a copy of the deed, copy of the rental / lease agreement or by water account information. You will be required to post a copy of the permit on the location of the garage sale throughout the duration of the sale.
Community garage sales do not count against your three allowed sales per year.
A garage sale permit will be valid for up to three consecutive calendar days. On each day, the garage sale is allowed to open 30 minutes following the sunrise and must close 30 minutes before sunset. All garage sale items must be removed by 8 a.m. the day following the last day of the sale.
If the applicant does not notify the Planning & Development Department the following business day, the garage sale will be counted. Permit fees will not be refunded under any circumstances.
Items must be placed at least seven feet back from the curb and at least five feet from the sides of the property.
The garage sale will be counted as a sale for the property on which it takes place. The number of families in the garage sale is not restricted.
