BrownwoodNews.com has received several email regarding rumors circulating regarding the City of Brownwood regulating garage sales.
One email we received states that the City of Brownwood has been sending out their code officials to require permits at all garage sales, whether personal or charitable, which is being disputed by city officials.
City of Brownwood’s code enforcement official Kevin Pate commented to us regarding the information circulating around town regarding garage sales and asked us to let our readers know about the regulations that are currently in place. Pate said that the city is not regulating garage sales, but the placement of signs around town promoting the sales, which has been in the City’s ordinances for years.
