Dear Village Resident ,
Now that spring is just around the corner, we may be seeing more solicitors around the village. S olicitors must first register with the village and submit to fingerprinting, so a background check can be run. Once they are cleared, each solicitor is issued a permit with the dates on it that they are allowed to be out. Please ask to see a solicitor's permit which should be dated for that day. If they do not have one, please contact the PD at 815-675-2596 while they are still in your neighborhood. If possible, make a note of the make and model of their vehicle and license plate number. If you would not like a solicitor to come to your home, whether registered or not, you can post a "No Solicitors Invited" sign on your front door, which are available at the Municipal Centre located at 7401 Meyer Road. Solicitation hours are 9 AM - 7 PM Monday - Saturday.
