Apply For A Permit


If you would like to hold a yard/garage sale you must first get a permit.  Permits are $3 (for your first sale of the year) and are good for 2 days.  Permit fees increase for each additional sale during the same year.  Yard/garage sale permits issued during the Belleville National Strawberry Festival cost $250.



A permit is required for anyone wishing to engage in door-to-door soliciting, canvassing or peddling in the City.  Every potential solicitor must make application for a permit.  All solicitor permit applicants must submit a $15 non-refundable application fee; applicants must provide a valid government issued photo identification and are subject to background check.  If approved, permits are issued on a yearly basis for an annual fee of $50 per person.  Daily permits are also available at the cost of $10 per day.  All soliciting/peddler permit holders are subject to limitations/restrictions during special events.  Please contact the Treasurer's office for additional information and assistance with applications.
