Permit now required for going out of business sales

Whitefish Bay - The Village Board on Monday approved an ordinance that requires a permit for going out of business sales.

The application requires the following information: an inventory of goods being sold, the name of the business owner and the name of the people doing the sale.

Village Manager Jim Grassman said in recent years there have been some issues with the sales concerning signs, advertising and bringing in outside merchandise.

Grassman said the village often did not know about the sales until they were under way.

"Now this requires them to notify us in advance," he said.

A fee of $100 is required for the permit.
