  • Permit Information

    Now is the time of year when you may consider having a garage or yard sale.  In addition, there are also businesses who may come knocking at your door to offer you their goods or services.  Here is some important information regarding door-to-door solicitation and yard/garage sales that you should be aware of.

    Solicitation Permits Are Required

    Under Mountville Borough Ordinance, persons soliciting within the Borough are required to obtain a permit through the West Hempfield Police Department. Exceptions include: non-profit organizations (e.g. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Lion Clubs, Rotary, etc.), school children selling items for school, and insurance and real estate agents licensed by the State.  Each solicitor is required to display their permit in a manner that is visible to those from whom they are soliciting.  Solicitation may occur Monday through Saturday, between the hours of 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM, except by prior appointment.  In order to protect you from unwanted solicitation, if a solicitor at your door does not have identification, please contact the West Hempfield Police Department at (717) 285-5191 from 8:00 AM until 4:30 PM, Monday thru Friday, (or at 800-957-2677 after hours), to determine their status.

    Yard/Garage Sale Permits

    Thinking of having a yard or garage sale?  While they are permitted within the Borough, there are adopted regulations governing them.

    • A yard/garage sale permit (at a cost of $5.00) must be secured from the Borough Office not less than seven (7) days prior to the sale. Borough ordinances state that it is unlawful to hold a yard sale without first obtaining a permit.
    • Only two (2) yard/garage sales are permitted per address per year.
    • Yard/garage sales may be held only between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM.
    • No yard/garage sale can be conducted for a period of longer than two (2) consecutive days.
    • Yard/garage sales may offer goods to be sold that are personal belongings of the applicant.
    • Only one four square-foot sign is permitted advertising the sale with the sign being located at the premises where the sale occurs. Advertising must be removed upon the completion of the sale.
  • Stop This Invader!

    What is Lycorma delicatula and why should you care?

    Lycorma delicatula, commonly known as the Spotted Lanternfly, is a new invasive insect that has spread throughout southeastern Pennsylvania since its discovery in Berks County in 2014. The Spotted Lanternfly presents a significant threat to Pennsylvania agriculture, including the grape, tree-fruit, hardwood and nursery industries, which collectively are worth nearly $18 billion to the state’s economy.
