Door-to-door vendors need permits from city

The City of Tecumseh reminds residents that vendors selling door-to-door must have a license from the city to do so, according to city ordinance. The ordinance regulates organizations, companies and persons soliciting sales door-to-door in the city’s residential areas “to protect general health, safety and welfare of citizens.”Even those with permits are restricted to specific hours and may operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.“There are two things that are important for residents to know,” said Tecumseh City Manager Kevin Welch. “First, these people must have a license on them, issued by the city. Secondly, if the resident has any concerns, they should ask the person to leave. If in doubt, call the police and do not allow anyone to enter their home.” Licenses may be obtained at City Hall with fees based on a per person/per day basis, or a yearly basis. The ordinance also notes that not-for-profit organizations, including service clubs, must also obtain a solicitor’s license, but will not be charged a fee.
