Apparently, Verizon is having door-to-door representatives canvas a number of local subdivisions, and they are reportedly ignoring the no soliciting signs.

Are there exemptions to the 'No Soliciting' signs that you can purchase from the city?

Mr. Barbon,

There are no exceptions or exemptions to the "No Soliciting" signs that you can purchase through the police department. If any entity ignores this signage, please contact the police department's non-emergency number at 972.292.6010 and we will send an officer out to assist in enforcing the no solicitation requirements. Thank you.

Question, does "NO SOLICITATION" mean no knocking/ringing door bell only or does it also include leaving junk like handbills, business cards, etc.?
I had one person tell me after I chased him down to return his junk that the sign only means he can't ring the door bell or knock on the door...

True of False? Thx!!

Also, shouldn't all these folks have some sort of Police issued permit readily available or visiable to the public?

The no solicitation signs are all-encompassing, meaning that handbills, fliers, knocking and talking, etc., are all included in the prohibition. If you observe a solicitor ignoring this rules, please contact the police department's non-emergency number at 972.292.6010.

Additionally, all solicitors are issued permits by the city that they are required to show upon demand. If they do not possess a permit, they are in violation of a city ordinance and cannot perform any form of solicitation in the city limits.

We would really like to see all solicitors banned from soliciting homeowners. I get so upset when I am outside gardening and some stranger walks up behind me just to put some trash on my front door. I refer to the item as trash because I have to go over to my door and throw it out. I have three no soliciting signs and they ignore all three signs. Isn't there some kind of trespassing law - I don't want anyone walking on my lawn and up to my door just to put something on my door I don't want. Some solicitors even use tape and the tape takes the paint off of the molding around my door. It's very aggravating. Can't they just stay off my property - I feel like I'm being infringed upon every time they walk on my lawn and touch my front door.

Using the city's no solicitation signs that are available for purchase at the police department will help alleviate unwanted solicitors. Additionally, all solicitors must have an active permit with the city in order to solicit. Please feel free to call the police department's non-emergency number at 972.292.6010 if you ever need a police officer to assist in enforcing your no solicitation sign.
