I'm having a garage sale; do I need a permit to put up signs?
Per Municipal Code Section 405.725, you must have a permit for off-premises temporary signs such as a garage sale. The cost is $3.00 for up to five locations. No sign shall be placed on utility or telephone poles, or within the right-of-way of any street, highway or alley. Complete an application for a sign permit and bring to the Building Department, West Entrance, City Hall. Call 636-583-1805 for more information.
