[ARCHIVED] City Council adopts Solicitation Ordinance

Springboro residents who choose to be a part of the Do Not Solicit List, can register here. The registration is valid until a resident changes addresses.

Beginning May 7, 2022, solicitors are required to obtain a license subject to a background check, pay a $25 fee and restrict hours for door-to-door sales from 9 7 p.m. In addition, the ordinance establishes a “Do Not Solicit List” that will be maintained by the City, which prohibits solicitors from making door-to-door contact with any addresses on the list. Solicitors are required to carry the list, the required license and a photo ID when making door-to-door calls.

The ordinance will not affect youth fundraising activities like school, sport or scout sales. It also doesn’t affect door-to-door political campaigns, collection of signatures or distribution of brochures or other literature. It does affect peddlers and solicitors selling for a profit; for example, door-to-door salespersons for landscaping, pest control and roofing companies would all need to have a solicitor’s license.

The ordinance is effective beginning May 7, 2022. Should a resident have a solicitor at the door without the required license or if a solicitor comes to your door and your address is included on the Do Not Solicit list, please call the Springboro Police Department, 937-748-0611.
