[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of Franklin 5-20-1996 as Ord. No. 96-7. Amendments noted where applicable.]
When any persons, group of persons, corporation, business, etc., plan on selling personal objects by displaying the objects on property owned by themselves or others, whether inside or outside, a permit, on a form issued by the Franklin Township Municipal Committee, must be issued authorizing the yard sale, garage sale, tag sale or flea market, etc., prior to the event taking place.
Each permit application must contain the following information:
Upon issuance, each permit will set forth a two- to three-day period during which the yard sale, garage sale, tag sale or flea market, etc., may take place, and, if applied for, the permit may set forth rain dates.
If the yard sale, garage sale, tag sale or flea market, etc., is to be conducted out of doors, the permit may restrict the hours of the sale to daylight hours only.
The permit will also dictate that all yard sale, garage sale, tag sale or flea market items, tables, displays and/or signs be removed within four hours from the end of the event.
No garage sale, yard sale, tag sale or flea market may impede or cause a disruption to motor vehicle traffic, pedestrian traffic and/or neighborhood parking.
Each resident, corporation, business, etc., will be limited to four permits per calendar year.
