Information for Solicitors
The Village of Montgomery requires Solicitors to be licensed prior to any door-to-door solicitation within Village limits. Solicitors must submit a notarized application (PDF) with a $30 fee. After a background check is performed, they will be notified if their application is approved, and if so a license will be issued that is good for 30 days. Solicitors must display this license at all times while soliciting.
This permission may be revoked upon violation of any Village ordinance, State law or regulation. Hours of solicitation are limited to 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. Canvassing or soliciting on state and national holidays is prohibited.
Solicitors may not knock on doors displaying "NO SOLICITING" sign. If unlicensed solicitors come to your door or if they ignore a posted No Soliciting sign, please contact police dispatch at 630-553-0554 to report this.
Information for Residents
Montgomery Officials remind residents to exercise caution when interacting with door-to-door salesmen.
The Village of Montgomery encourages the public to ask anyone who comes to your home selling anything to present their Village of Montgomery Solicitor's License. This license is required by the Village for any person or business that plans to solicit to residential areas.
