As the weather warms, residents may experience an increase in door-to-door sales associates. If you do encounter a solicitor at your door, they are REQUIRED to have a permit from the City of Forney. These permits are required because they allow the City to perform background checks on applicants, which then allows the City to approve or deny the permit request. Not only are solicitors required to carry the permit on them at all times, they are also restricted to go door-to-door from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Residents who wish to have no interaction with solicitors are asked to display “No Solicitation Allowed” or “No Peddlers Allowed” sign that can be easily visible. If you suspect that a person in your neighborhood is soliciting without a permit, please call the Forney Police Department at 972.564.7600.
