Garage Sale Notices
Interested in holding a garage sale?
Each weekend there are at least a handful of garage/yard sales taking place in Oakley. These sales can be a great way of cleaning house, while making a little extra money for your family. In the event you would like to hold a sale, we want to make you aware of some important regulations:
- No more than three (3) sales per calendar year may take place at the same address;
- Sales shall not exceed three (3) calendar days per event;
- Sales may operate only during daylight hours only;
- Signs announcing sales may NOT be posted in the public right-of-way or on any public property (this includes streets, landscaped medians; landscaped strips along roadways, on telephone poles, power poles, street lights, street signs, City trees, or on sidewalks or curbs);
- Signs, up to a maximum of four (4) square feet, may be placed on the site of the sale or on other private property WITH permission of the property owner; and
All signs must be removed at the conclusion of the sale. Any signs placed on utility poles, traffic lights, traffic signs, street signs, fire hydrants or trees will be removed and the cost for removal and any damage caused by the sign will be charged to the person sponsoring the garage sale.
There have been many instances of signs illegally placed on public property and not even removed afterwards. Be advised, that Code Enforcement Officers can cite you for illegally posted signs and can charge you the cost of recovery and any damage caused to City property. The irony of the illegal signs is that the violator is guiding Code Enforcement to his or her address.
To encourage compliance with Code regulations on signage and to help minimize the need for signs, the City does offer a FREE community service for any resident wishing to post a garage sale notice on the City's web site.
The City of Oakley does not endorse or support any sale posted on these pages, but the posting does provide a convenient place for people to know where the sales are taking place.
