HIGHLAND MILLS — Woodbury Town Clerk Desiree Potvin issued the following press release regarding solicitors and peddlers:

The Town of Woodbury has a local law that requires all solicitors and peddlers to obtain a permit with the Town Clerk’s Office prior to knocking on your door.

This applies to profit and not-for-profit organizations (it does not apply to individuals walking petitions to run for elected office or religious entities).

If an individual knocks on your door, you should ask to see their permit.

This permit will contain my signature and the raised seal (impression) of the Town of Woodbury.

If the person is not able to produce a permit, call the police (928-2341; not 911).

In addition, the Town of Woodbury has a “No Solicitation” program that residents can enroll in to have their name added to a list of those that do not wish to be solicited.

There is a form that needs to be completed and enrollment is free. Forms are available on our website, www.townofwoodbury.com under the Town Clerk’s page or by visiting or calling the Town Clerk’s Office at 928-6829 ext. 7.

If you are currently enrolled in this program and you are solicited, call the police (928-2341; not 911) so a blotter is created.

If you have any questions about this law or program, call the Town Clerk’s office for assistance.
