Recently we have received information that people are going door to door selling merchandise. Some are ignoring the “No Solicitation” signs on homes and when confronted are claiming that since they were not on a bicycle, they weren’t considered a solicitor. Anyone who is going door to door trying to sell something is a solicitor.
If someone comes to your door trying to sell you something, ask to see their solicitor’s badge. In the unincorporated areas of Tooele County, the license will be a green laminated card and will include the person’s picture and the dates that the license is good for. Tooele City’s solicitor license is blue. Grantsville City’s is cream for this year. If they have this license, please know that they have met the requirements in the county and city codes.
If you have a “No Solicitation” sign on your home and they solicit anyway, you have the right to call the Sheriff’s Office, or your local city police, depending on where you live. Also please contact the Clerk’s Office so we can use our resources to stop them.
