Are solicitors required to obtain a city permit?

Yes, each solicitor, whether an individual or an employee of a business, is issued an ID badge indicating the permit has been approved and must wear it while soliciting. 

Any company/individual wanting to solicit business in Levelland who does not conduct their business at a permanent building location must apply for an annual Peddler's Permit for the business. So this includes street vendors who want to sell from a tent, a trunk, a tailgate etc as well as door to door sales. The cost of that annual permit is $25.00. 

The business/individual must also provide proof of a surety bond in the amount of no less than $1,000 and proof of a current sales tax permit.  

There is a twenty-five dollar ($25.00) registration fee per person. This fee covers the cost of the ID badge and a criminal background check. No permits will be issued until a satisfactory criminal background check has been received. 

Payment of this fee is required at the time the application is submitted for consideration and is not refundable in the event that the City denies the person's application.  

The permit is valid for thirty (30) Days. Questions regarding solicitors may be directed to the City Secretary. For more information click here
