Solicitors Permit

The Arroyo Grande Municipal Code Chapter 5.76 states the city council finds that persons and organizations have been and are visiting private residential properties in the city for the purpose of peddling and/or soliciting orders for the sale of goods, wares, merchandise or services, and that some residents find such visits and the tactics used by such visitors to be bothersome and highly intrusive. The council further finds that the public safety, welfare and convenience necessitates the exercise of the police power of the city through the enactment and enforcement of this chapter for the purpose of protecting the privacy of residents and preventing aggressive, threatening, abusive and fraudulent practices by persons representing themselves as peddlers and solicitors.

Applicants for a solicitors permit shall file an application with the Chief of Police.
