I found a paragraph from the " Nelson Steck-Vaughn Ged book" and was wondering something. The main idea of this paragraph is about purchasing permits, but I'm a bit confused as to where the topic sentence is. Is the main idea simply implied? or is sentence 1+2 the topic sentence?

1. Town residents may now purchase recycling permits at the Town Hall. They may also purchase permits at the Recycling station during normal operating hours. Permits cost $10 and are valid for one year. If you want to obtain a permit, you must appear in person. Permits will not be issued by mail.

    By "topic sentence", do you mean a sentence that expresses the main idea of the paragraph?

    If so, then I don't think that paragraph has a "topic sentence".

    Yes, a sentence that expresses the main idea. Ya I sort of figured it was more implied in this case but wasn't too sure, thank you.
