Peddlers, Solicitors, and Transient Merchants
Educational and Religious Organizations
Peddlers, Solicitors & Transient Merchants The peddlers permit covers anyone going door to door or on the public street selling products, subscriptions, or services. An application must be completed by the organization and each individual that will be selling will need to be listed along with their social security number. The application is forwarded to the chief of police for approval. It can take up to ten days to be approved according to city ordinance.
Once approved, each organization must produce a $10,000 cash or surety bond and prepay $25 per day for each day they are going to sell in town. After all requirements have been fulfilled, a badge is issued for each individual listed on the application.
