Peddler's License

REQUIREMENTS:


Any person who wishes to act as a hawker, peddler or solicitor within the Town of Webster must obtain a Peddler’s Permit from the Town Clerk’s Office prior to engaging in soliciting door-to-door. Non-profit organizations, religious organizations distributing religious information, and political parties who are campaigning, are exempt from obtaining a peddler’s permit.

Peddling is governed in Webster by local law. The Town and Village have separate laws for peddling and soliciting within their boundaries.

In the Town (outside the Village), each person going door-to-door must have his/her own individual permit issued by the Town. Currently, the permit is yellow and about the size of a business card, with the signature of the Town Clerk, and the person peddling or soliciting.

APPLICATION PROCESS:


To obtain a peddler’s permit in the Town of Webster, an applicant must complete an application and apply in person at the Town Clerk’s Office. The non-refundable application fees are $100.00 for each company and $75.00 for each individual who will be soliciting for that company. The permit is good for a 3 month period, and, upon approval can be extended for $30.00 for each additional consecutive month per person.

When an application is submitted and before it can be processed, a police background check from the applicant’s current municipality where they reside, is required. Additionally, there is a waiting period after applying for the permit while a background check is completed by the Webster Police Department.

WHAT RESIDENTS SHOULD KNOW:


Peddlers are asked to display the permit on their person, in a visible manner when soliciting. They cannot say it is with their boss, or they forgot, or that it is in their car. If a peddler is found to be soliciting without a permit, you are encouraged to report the solicitor to the Webster Police by calling 9-1-1, especially if you fear for your personal safety or are suspicious of the activity. It is most helpful if you have the company name and the name of the individual, nature of business, and type of vehicle. If possible, please try to obtain any literature or brochures offered, as this will assist an investigation. Also, please notify the Town Clerk’s Office if you had a negative experience with a licensed solicitor. A permit can be revoked if the behavior is in violation of the Town Code.
