    After completing the solicitor paperwork, all solicitors must stop into City Hall WITH a valid driver’s license. The police department will run each solicitor through a background check. If the solicitor passes, they will receive a stamped, imprinted pass with their name that they can show to the members of our community. They will ask to see that permit! Solicitor permits allow soliciting between 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM only.

    If any person or group is found to be soliciting without a background check or a stamped, imprinted pass, they will be escorted out of town, along with the entire soliciting group, if applicable, and not allowed to return as a solicitor within the community
