Frequently Asked Questions
Which permit do I need?
Solicitors – Going door to door taking orders.
Note: If the seller is putting flyers on the doors or in paper boxes and not making contact with residents, a permit is not needed.
Non-profit groups: No permit is needed, but the Police Department does need a list of vehicles being used and license plate numbers.
When is a Temporary Outdoor Exhibition (block party) permit needed?
A permit is required if a public street is being blocked off. The Police Department will determine where barricades can be placed to close off the street.
