Check Before You Post Garage Sale Signs

SALEIf you are planning a garage sale this summer, please remember that posting signs on utility poles, light poles, traffic light poles, stop sign poles, or in the public right-of-way, including boulevards and intersections, is not allowed in the City of Hopkins. Unauthorized signs placed on public property will be removed and destroyed.

Signs cannot be posted on private property without obtaining prior permission from the property owner.

Residents are allowed to host up to two garage sales per year, with each one lasting no more than three days.


Save Money On Energy

The City of Hopkins partners with the Home Energy Squad to offer reduced cost energy audits of your home.

Register Your Alarm Systems

If you have a fire or burglar alarm system in your house, remember to register annually.

Reminder: House numbers

Visible house numbers are an invaluable aid in providing services to your home. City emergency personnel and garbage collection, recycling, and utility crews rely on house numbers that can be seen from the street or alley to correctly service your property.

Make sure your house numbers are visible by posting numbers that:

  • are at least 4 inches high
  • in a contrasting color to that of your house
