Over the past few weeks, the Town of Zionsville has received reports of solicitors in the area. Residents should know that any vendor who desires to engage in door-to-door solicitation in the corporate limits of the town of Zionsville must first have a secured permit through the Zionsville Police Department. Completed vendor permits will be processed and, if approved, the license and associated identification will be issued by the police department.
A list of currently registered solicitors can be found here: www.zionsville-in.gov/500/Active-Solicitor-Permits.
“When in doubt, residents have the right to ask solicitors for their license,” said Chief Robert Knox. “If solicitors do not have the necessary license from ZPD, or if you feel uneasy about a solicitor, please contact the police department.”
The licenses are available for 10 days ($20 fee) and 120 days ($90 fee). Each vendor must also pay a $3 license fee for each individual solicitor and each applicant is required to obtain a State Police background check no more than two weeks prior to applying for a permit. Door-to-door solicitations must not take place before 9 a.m. or after 9 p.m.
Certain exceptions exist including non-commercial solicitors on behalf of a non-commercial sponsor which is the town or any public or private school which residents or citizens of the town attend.
