Effective June 15, 2011, the City of Claremore passed a garage sale ordinance to provide a permitting process and allow residents to advertise their sale with city-issued signs. Residents inside Claremore City limits may visit the Utility Office at 104 South Muskogee, to obtain a permit. The fee for the permit is $5 and includes 3 signs:
1 for the location of the sale
2 others that may be placed on street corners or in right-of-way, pending they do not obstruct the view of traffic
Each permit is good for up to 4 days. In case of inclement weather on the permitted dates of the sale, the time period may be extended by City staff.
Residents are limited to 2 garage sales per calendar year. Residents who hold a garage sale without a city permit or advertise their sale with signs other than those issued by the City will be subject to a $200 fine. Residents who obtain a permit but do not remove their city-issued signs after the sale will be subject to a $20 fine.
Also included in the $5 permit fee is a free listing on the city’s website. The following is a list of permitted garage sales for this week:
