During this week’s Village Board Meeting on July 26, 2021, Mayor Dominick DiMaggio and the Village Board of Trustees took action to comply with the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. As mandated, the Village Board passed an ordinance allowing commercial solicitors to knock on residential doors. Please click here to view the new solicitation ordinance.
As a result, you may encounter commercial solicitors at your door. However, the solicitors must wear a permit, visible to residents. Our Community Development Department must approve a solicitation application in order to issue a permit. Once the application is approved, the Village will provide commercial solicitors with a permit pin-on card which includes the following information:
- Name of the soliciting company
- Effective date of the permit
- The dates in which the solicitation shall occur
- A photograph of the solicitor
If you do not want solicitors to come to your door, you can post a “No Solicitors” or “No Solicitors Invited” notice near the main entrance door to your residence. For your convenience, we are providing a “No Solicitors” notice to post at your home. Please click here for a printable “No Solicitors” notice.
If you should have any questions, please contact Village Hall at (847) 438-5500.
