The City of Satellite Beach requires that all peddlers, canvassers and solicitors apply before going door to door. The application process is administered by the Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division. Fee for an application is $10.00, plus $25.00 for each person authorized to solicit, peddle or canvass under the application. Each application is limited to no more than six persons per application. All permits are valid for 30 days only and are governed by City Code, and solicitation, peddling and canvassing are restricted to between the hours of 9:00 am and 6:00 pm. Applicants are subject to a background check and if approved are required to be photographed and wear a Police Department issued identification badge when going door to door. Violations of the ordinance include going door to door without an approved permit, approaching a residence that has a notice posted prohibiting solicitors, peddlers and canvassers and soliciting, peddling or canvassing from a roadway. For detailed information and to learn about restrictions for religious, charitable or political groups see City Code CH 42.
The application process takes between 3-5 business days; permits become effective the day the applicant(s) are photographed and badged. To apply for a solicitor permit contact Patti Noe, Criminal Investigations Division, ext 142 or click the button below to download the application.
