Palm Coast residents who want to have a garage sale you could have to fork over $5 or face a fine if a new ordinance is passed.
"As far as the city charging a fee for it I think that's crazy, I don't think it's necessary," said Frank Miller, of Palm Coast.
Miller says a proposed ordinance that mandates the purchase of a $5 permit for a garage sale is simply bad business.
"It's just one more thing to charge people for, that's not right," Miller said.
The ordinance was brought to light after council members received complaints about too many garage sales, current code only allows two per year for two days at a time.
"It seemed like every weekend they were having a garage sale which brought in a lot traffic and disturbed the residential nature of the neighborhood," said council member Frank Meeker.
The ordinance would also require people to use a uniform sign issued by the city and to register their sale on the city's website.
"You'd be able to click on a map and you'd be able to create a route, and you would know who was selling what where, and so there's some benefit," Meeker said.
Those who don't pay up could be fined by code enforcement for up to $63 bucks, but Meeker says he's not fan of the permit fee.
"I don't think I need a permit for it, when I think code enforcement could already address the issue themselves," Meeker said.
Council members will vote on a first reading of the ordinance at Tuesday's council meeting, city leaders say the $5 fee is to offset administrative costs incurred because of the ordinance.
Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach and South Daytona all have similar ordinances.
