Solicitors and Door-to-Door Canvassing

Solicitors must obtain a proper permit. Each person shall pay a $500.00 fee for this permit and each solicitor will have to fill out an application and go through a background check.

Our local ordinance contains the following: “It shall be unlawful for any peddler to enter upon any private premises when such premises are posted with a sign stating, “No Peddlers Allowed” or “No Solicitations Allowed”, or other words to such effect. Residents may obtain such signs from the Village Hall at no cost. This sign shall be posted on or near the main entrance of the residence.

You can also add your name and address to our No Solicitations list. This list is distributed to solicitors who have obtained a solicitor permit from the Village office. This list tells them that you are on the No Solicitations list and they cannot go to your door.
