What Residents Should Know About Door to Door Solicitors (Peddlers)

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. Peddler Permits have expiration dates, and current peddlers are listed on the Town's Website. 

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. 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.
