WPD responded to the area of Elbow Lane and Woodspring Drive to investigate the report of door-to-door solicitors. Once located, a citation was issued due to the solicitors not having a permit.
Some organizations are exempt from permit regulations and are allowed to canvas neighborhoods. Solicitors are required by Township Ordinance to register and have a permit. Residents can contact the Township office during business hours (215) 343-9350 to verify a permit, or the Police Department at (215) 343-3311.
