This is a reminder to all residents that Ordinance 1-90.20 regulates the frequency and number of “garage sales” permitted in the Village and establishes that you must be registered to hold such a sale inside the Village of Hartville. The Ordinance also sets up the rules by which the “garage sale” may be operated.
The Ordinance also regulates the placement of signs advertising the sale and prohibits the placing of signs on private property without the owner’s consent. State Law also prohibits attaching any signs to public utility poles or street signs or placing a sign in the public right of way in such a manner as to obstruct the view of persons using the highways.
The Hartville Police are authorized to remove illegally posted signs and can cite persons posting such signs. It is also illegal for persons holding garage sales outside the Village of Hartville to post signs advertising their sale on utility poles or street signs inside the Village Corporate Limits and allows the police department to enforce that law.
For registration to hold garage sales, please call the Village Hall at 330.877.9222 during business hours.
