New regulations for local door-to-door solicitors and peddlers

Solicitor Safety

The Village of Lombard recently approved amendments to the local ordinance regulating door-to-door solicitors and peddlers within the Village of Lombard.

New regulations, which include a shorter time window and additional identification requirements for solicitors, will go into effect on Tuesday, May 1, 2018.

The primary update to Village solicitor regulations is the reduction in solicitation hours from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday-Saturday to 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday-Saturday. The overall hours for solicitation will be reduced by four hours, from twelve down to eight hours per day and Sunday will remain a day when door-to-door solicitation is prohibited. In reevaluating the solicitation hours, the Village Board of Trustees took a look at permitted hours in neighboring communities and reduced local hours accordingly.  

As part of the amended regulations, all licensed solicitors will be required to obtain and display a photo ID badge at all times they are soliciting within the Village of Lombard. Photos IDs for all solicitors currently approved for door-to-door soliciting or peddling at any given time will be posted for reference by the public at The regulatory changes above do not impact individuals engaging in door-to-door advocacy of a particular position or cause, who are not subject to local solicitor registration requirements or licenses.     

Residents who do not wish to have solicitors approach their home are reminded that they may post a “No Solicitors of Peddlers” sign on their property near the main entrance measuring at least three inches by four inches in size. Homeowners may create their own signage or may purchase signs at the Village Hall for $0.50. It is unlawful for a solicitor to engage in any peddling or soliciting on any posted premises or residence. Violators of the Village solicitor ordinance can be reported to the Village and are subject to potential penalties and license revocation.  

Residents are reminded that as a homeowner or occupant, you may at any time ask a solicitor to leave your property and if they refuse, call 911 for assistance. “Every resident has the right to feel secure in their own home,” said Police Chief Roy Newton. “If you should ever feel threatened or unsafe based upon the behavior of a solicitor or peddler, please contact the Police immediately.”    Further, citizens who believe a solicitor is violating the law are urged to contact the Police so that officers may locate the individuals involved and investigate.

For more information, visit the Village website at or contact Janet Downer, Business Administrator, at or (630)620-5913.
