Note from Town Clerk Dan Aman regarding Door-to-Door Solicitations
Warmer months traditionally bring an increase in the number of door-to-door salespeople that walk throughout our community. I thought it would be the perfect time to remind everyone of our Town's Codes surrounding this type of activity. Solicitors may now enter onto private property between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. unless a homeowner makes a specific request otherwise.
In addition, solicitor permits are no longer required of any veterans or fraternal organization, a church or other religious sect, or any organization that qualifies as a not-for profit under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Any organization that is selling goods or services or soliciting funds must still be registered with the Town. Check our website under the Town Clerk's page to see who we have issued Solicitor Permits to, along with their pictures. Homeowners should request identification from anyone coming to the door whether or not they are carrying a Town issued permit.
A Town of Brighton issued permit does not mean that the Town endorses the product or service being offered. It assures the resident that the Town Clerk and Police Department have record of each person promoting those products or services within our Town.
If you prefer not to receive door-to-door solicitations, you may place a No Solicitors; sign on or near your door as a legal warning that uninvited guests are not welcome. As always, please use caution when opening the door to any unknown individual.
Brighton residents should report any suspicious activity to the Office of the Town Clerk by calling 784-5240. To report a problem that may require police intervention, we urge residents to call 911.
