YARD/GARAGE SALE PERMITS
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.
