[HISTORY: Adopted by the Borough Council of the Borough of Hellertown 9-7-2004 by Ord. No. 667. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Temporary businesses — See Ch. 140, Art. I.
Hellertown Borough residents must apply two weeks in advance for garage and yard sale permits at a cost established by Borough Council resolution from time to time. The sales will be limited to two days each year at any one location or address. For nonprofit organizations, such as churches, firehouses, and other registered nonprofit organizations who conduct such sales within permanent structures located on their premises for the exclusive benefit of their organizations, those nonprofit organizations shall be limited to six days each year at any one location or address.
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I).
An extra bond of $50 must be posted with the Borough if the seller wishes to post directional signs or advertising. The $50 is a surety that the signs will be taken down by the permit holders within 48 hours after the sale.
This chapter applies to all locations in a residential area, including churches, firehouses and other charitable organizations, which must apply for permits, but are exempt from the fees. Anyone posting signs, however, would have to post the fifty-dollar surety.
Any person, firm or corporation who or which shall violate or fail to comply with any of the provisions of this chapter shall, upon conviction for every such violation, be sentenced to pay a fine of not less than $100 for every such offense and, in default of payment of such fine and costs, be imprisoned in the County Jail for not more than 30 days.
