The City of Monmouth recently passed a Solicitation Ordinance. This Ordinance requires door to door salesmen to get a permit before they can sell. It does not include non-profits, such as the Boy Scouts, religious organizations or a child selling items as a fundraiser for school. A company must fill out a form and pay a $50 fee. After a company is approved they will receive a Certificate of Registration, which every representative should be carrying when soliciting. If they do not have a Certificate, they should not be at your door. A link to the Ordinance and the form are below.
