All solicitors and peddlers must submit a license application and, if approved, receive a permit from the Village, except for certain groups or organizations that are exempt from the permitting requirements because of state or federal law or court decisions, for example: religious groups, political group and companies selling books, magazines, newspapers, or other publications.
With a permit, solicitors may operate only Monday–Saturday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Soliciting is not allowed on Sundays and holidays. Residents may post a sign on their front door stating they do not want solicitations. These signs are available at Village Hall. Please report any solicitation without a permit or during non-solicitation hours to the Police Department at 708-246-8540.
