Garage Sales
Thinking about having a garage sale in Town? Here's what you need to know!

The Town of Surfside allows residents to hold two garage sales per calendar year without a permit although Code Compliance must still be notified by email.

Note: If you've already held two garage sales within a calendar year and would like to hold another one, then you must apply for a garage sale permit (see below) and pay a $10.00 fee.

Garage Sales signs shall be located only on private property. They are permitted within 24 hours of the event and shall be removed no later than 24 hours after the event.
