The vendor is then directed to the Police Department for a background check.   Vendors are given the current non-solicitation list when they obtain their solicitation permit and they are not permitted to solicit any residence that is on the list.

If you have a non-solicitation decal on your front door/window and someone does come to your house, please contact the police.  

The "NON-SOLICITATION LIST" is maintained in the Clerk's Office.  If you wish to be on the list or would like to update your information or get another non-solicitation decal, please complete the form and either mail or email it to the Clerk's.  We will send you a non-solicitation sticker to place on a window or door.

Childhood Cancer

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Families, caregivers, charities and research groups across the United States observe September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. In the U.S., 15,780 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year; approximately 1/4 of them will not survive the disease. A diagnosis turns the lives of the entire family upside down. The objective of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is to put a spotlight on the types of cancer that largely affect children, survivorship issues, and – importantly – to help raise funds for research and family support. Visit the American Childhood Cancer Organization site for more information: https://www.acco.org/types-of-childhood-cancer/
