Solicitors must have permits in Nacogdoches
NACOGDOCHES — All persons soliciting for charitable donations, or selling items door to door in Nacogdoches must have a permit and must be registered with the City.
“There are very few exceptions to this law”, said Sgt. Greg Sowell, Public Information Officer for the Nacogdoches Police Department. “Anyone selling items or soliciting for donations should check with the city before they start”.
Those wishing to register and obtain permits should come to the Nacogdoches Police Department at 312 West Main during normal business hours, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am- 5:00 pm.
The permit issued to those selling door to door is a city document, in the form of a letter. It is issued by the Chief of Police, and sets a specific period that it is valid. Solicitors must possess this permit while working. Residents are encouraged to ask to see this permit.
