Weekends, of course, are prime time for garage sales. But it may surprise you that the sale must have a permit, otherwise it’s illegal.
The Miami City Commission voted Thursday to remove the $28.50 fee the permits used to cost, in the hopes that more people will toe the line.
Permitting for garage sales is nothing new; Coral Gables, North Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and Hollywood also require permitting.
In Miami you’re allowed up to 2 garage sales per year. But if you owe any fines because of code violations, you’ll have to settle up before a permit can be issued.
