Garage and yard sales need a permit, police say

Posted: Friday, Jun 28th, 2013

WATSONVILLE — The Watsonville Police Department is reminding the public that anyone who wants to sell their unwanted knickknacks, old appliances and piles of clothes in yard or garage sales must have a permit to do so.

Not having a permit is a violation of Watsonville Municipal Code.

The announcement to the media is an attempt by police to tamp down on non-permitted garage and yard sales without immediately starting to write citations, said WPD Lt. Jorge Zamora.

“We want to educate the public first,” he said.

It is also a violation of the municipal code to put up signs on poles or other areas in the city.

According to municipal code, people having garage sales may put up a sign no larger than three square feet immediately outside their residence, but not anywhere else in the city.

Permits are valid for two consecutive days, cost $19 and are limited to no more than one per household every six months. They are available in the front office of the police department.
