St. Charles provides reminder on solicitation rules

ST. CHARLES – Noting that "it is that time of year" when the number of potential door-to-door solicitors might increase, the city of St. Charles issued a news release advising of the rules for solicitations.

According to the release, solicitors must follow a process. Profitable organizations must register with the city and pay a fee of $50 and then wait for approval. The process is the same for charitable organizations, except that there is no fee.

The city reminded that solicitors should not enter the property where a "no solicitors invited" sign is displayed. Such signs should be posted adjacent to the entrance, the release stated. Also, solicitation must not take place before 9 a.m. or after 7 p.m. on any day. There should be no solicitation on a Sunday or on any state or national holiday. Solicitation should not be done on school property.

Also, the release stated, those who have been convicted of sex offenses will not be granted a permit by the city. And solicitors should leave if they are asked to do so.

Residents can call the St. Charles Police Department to verify whether a solicitor is registered by calling 630-377-4435.
