Having a yard sale? Don't forget your permit
Tracy B. Cieniewicz, Hartselle Enquirer
Summer yard sales turn a profit not only for those selling their treasures but also for the city of Hartselle.
The city requires residents holding a yard sale to purchase a $5 permit. The permit can be purchased at city hall during regular business hours, Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Permits can be purchased well in advance of the sale date, but must be purchased by the sale date.
