No, the City of Melissa does not require permits for holding a Garage Sale.
However we do recommend you confirm with your Homeowners/Property Owners association for any other requirements and/or limitations prior to holding your sale.

Yes, garage sale signs are considered ’stake signs’ and are regulated under City of Melissa Code of Ordinance § Article 3.1010 (Permissible Signs That Do Not Require the Issuance of a Sign Permit). Specifically subsection (g)(4) which is excerpted.
If you have any questions, please contact Code Compliance prior to placing your signs to avoid them being confiscated.
If your signs you have placed out for your garage sale have been removed, it is most likely due to their placement not being in compliance with the Sign Ordinance. Code Compliance staff completes regular rounds of all City of Melissa neighborhoods and will confiscate any signs that are not in compliance with the ordinance.
Also please keep in mind that certain Homeowners Associations may have additional requirements and/or limitations that lead to the signs being removed by them as well.
If your signs are confiscated, you may contact Code Compliance at 972-838-1089 or by email to make arrangements to pick them up.
