Maumelle proposal would regulate door-to-door solicitors

Posted: Updated:

MAUMELLE (KATV) - Door-to-door solicitors could soon be regulated inside Maumelle city limits.

A proposed ordinance slated to be read for the first time at Monday night's city council meeting would require solicitors to get a permit from the city clerk and undergo a criminal background check before knocking on any doors.

All solicitors would be required to cover the costs of the background check but non-profits and any solicitors based in Maumelle's corporate boundaries would not have to pay for permits.
