Title 147 Peddling and Soliciting – Also known as the “Solicitation Ordinance” of Lower Makefield Township states that a license is required and no person shall engage in soliciting or peddling in the Township of Lower Makefield without first having been granted a license as herein provided.
For a complete listing of the ordinance go to www.lmt.org, move your cursor over “Township Information” and then click on “Code Book”.
Below is a SAMPLE picture of the permit (for profit and Non-Profit) that is issued by the police department, after a background check has been conducted on the applicant(s). The ‘for profit’ permit will have a facial photo of the individual and information relating to the applicant’s vehicle on the back, if one is used for the purpose of soliciting in Lower Makefield Township.
Lower Makefield Twp. residents should ALWAYS ask any solicitor at their door for Township issued identification for soliciting. Do not do business with any solicitor that cannot produce a valid permit. Additionally, please call the police dispatcher (215-493-4011) so our patrols can check them out.
Valid permits may be obtained for up to one(1) year . The expiration date is prominent on the permits.
The applicant(s) must complete the application (found under the "FORMS" section of our website), provide a passport type photo, and the results from a criminal record check from the Pennsylvania State Police. Non-profit groups are exempt from the fee, but should still complete an application. Please call the office at 215-493-4055 for more information.
