Solicitator’s License RequiredDid you know that if someone knocks on your door to try to sell you something, they are supposed to have a solicitors license issued by the City of Halsey? Any time a salesperson knocks on your door, you should ask to see it.A solicitors license is required for each individual sales person, so if they tell you that “my company has one,” it isn’t true. The City of Halsey requires that Solicitors and Peddlers apply for a license ahead of time, so that a background check can be done on each seller. If a license is issued, it is a small, laminated card with the City of Halsey logo and the name of the sales person and the company they work for. If you are ever uncomfortable with a salesperson coming to your house, ask to see their license. You can also call City Hall and let us know if someone is going door to door without a license. Even if they have a license, if they behave inappropriately or make you uncomfortable, please let us know. You can also call the sheriff. Thank you for helping to keep Halsey safe!
Crime Prevention ForumThe City of Halsey will be hosting a Crime Prevention Forum on June 29th at 6:30 PM in the Community Center.
