Solicitor/ Peddler Information

To Register:
Each individual who wants to solicit door-to-door in the Village of Niles is required to register with the Deputy Village Clerk. To register:
Once the individual has been approved, the Deputy Clerk will issue a Solicitor-Peddler Permit with the Village of Niles seal that is valid for three months. For more information, please refer to the solicitation ordinance or contact Cathy Spadoni at 847-588-8005.

The Village of Niles has “No Solicitors or Peddlers Invited” decals available upon request. The decal should be placed on the front door or window so that it can be clearly seen when approaching the building. If the decal is clearly visible, a solicitor should not distribute advertising materials, knock on the door or ring the doorbell. If this happens, you may ask them to leave your property and call the Niles Police Department as soon as possible at (847) 588-6500.

Certain groups do not need permission from the Village to solicit door-to-door. These groups include religious organizations; educational institutions; membership, political or veterans’ organizations; and scouts. But even these groups are prohibited from distributing advertising materials, knocking on your door or ringing your doorbell if the “No Solicitors or Peddlers Invited” decal is clearly visible. For more information, contact Cathy Spadoni at (847) 588-8005.
