Solicitors Required to Have Permits for Door-to-Door Sales

No Solicting

The City of Forney would like to remind residents that as spring nears, residents may experience an increase in door-to-door sales associates. If you do encounter a solicitor at your door, they are required to have a permit from the City of Forney. Permits are required because they allow the City to perform background checks on applicants, which allows the City to approve or deny the permit. Not only are solicitors required to carry the permit on them at all times, they are also restricted to go door-to-door from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Residents who wish to have no interaction with solicitors are asked to display “No Solicitation Allowed” or “No Peddlers Allowed” sign that can be easily visible. If you suspect that a person in your neighborhood is soliciting without a permit, please call the Forney Police Department at 972.564.7600.
