Village Regulations for Commercial Solicitors


Spring is here and so are door-to-door salespeople. All commercial solicitors are required to get a Village permit prior to going door-to-door. Along with the permit, they are required to carry a Village-issued badge that includes a photo, their name, their company and the expiration date of the license. Before engaging with any door-to-door sales person, ask to see their badge. The badge proves that the solicitor has paid their $50 fee, has been informed of the Village’s door-to-door solicitation regulations and has passed a background check by the Police Department. The permit is good for two weeks. If you encounter a commercial solicitor without a badge, please call the Police Department non-emergency number at 847.945.8636.

Commercial solicitors are prohibited from entering any private property that has posted a “No Solicitors or Peddlers” sign. Commercial solicitation is authorized between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. It is not allowed on Sundays or on a State or National holiday.

Although the Village issues door-to-door solicitation permits, it does not endorse any service or product.

Please note that these regulations apply only to commercial solicitors. Non-commercial solicitors, such as people asking for support for a charitable, political, religious or not-for-profit organization, are not required to register with the Village.

Fire Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant Flushing

Fire hydrant flushing in the Village is temporarily on hold for the rest of the week in observance of holidays. Flushing will resume on Monday, April 22, weather depending.

Do not do laundry on the day hydrants are flushed in your area. Flushing may stir up rust that can enter washing machines and cause discoloration to certain types of clothing. Additionally, there may be discoloration in the water coming from the faucets in your home after hydrant flushing is complete in your area. It is recommended that residents flush water from their residential, interior system through a tub spout for a few minutes to clear out sediment. Please note that the water from the tap is safe to drink at all times. 

If you have any questions, contact the Water Department at 847.317.7245 or publicworks@deerfield.il.us.
