Transient Vendors interested in doing business in Copley Township will be required to submit an application 14 days in advance of their solicitation. The information will be verified through our Police Department and the vendor will be required to pay a fee of $100.00. They will be given a list of rules which will include hours they are permitted to solicit and a requirement to carry a copy of the license with them at all times. The regulations will prohibit solicitation in residences or businesses that display signage that prohibits peddling or soliciting activities.
The Township will be compiling a “No Knock” list which we will supply to the vendors along with the rules. Vendors will be prohibited from soliciting to residences or businesses appearing on the list. If you would like to be placed on the list, please contact the Town Hall by calling 330-666-1853 or by sending an email to Township@copley.oh.us . In addition, you may download the attached “No Solicitation” sign, print a copy and place it in a conspicuous place at the front of your residence or you may purchase a sign at Staples or Office Depot. The Township is working on securing signs that will be free to residents – please call before coming to the Town Hall to make sure they are available.
Please don’t hesitate to call the Town Hall or our Dispatch Center at (330) 666-8866 if you have any question as to the validity of a vendor knocking at your door; they will have a list of all valid licenses that have been issued. You have every right to ask for credentials and are under no obligation to pay attention to their sales pitch.
