As of August 2016, the City suspended the requirement of individuals soliciting funds or distributing any commercial handbills to obtain a permit issued by the City of Frisco. However, an individual is still required to have the following:
A copy of the valid state sales tax certificate, if applicable.
A valid driver's license or other valid, official photo identification.
Door-to-Door Solicitors and Strangers at Your Door
While many door-to-door solicitors are legitimately offering services for sale, some may have other motives, such as burglary or theft. In an effort to assist our residents, here are some safety measures to consider.
When someone knocks at your door, always acknowledge you are home. Talk through the door without opening it or communicate using a video doorbell. The wide-angle lens comes in handy when you aren't home and to capture footage of anyone at your door.
REMEMBER, even if you are convinced that the person knocking on your door is a legitimate solicitor, you are under no obligation to open the door. Simply tell the solicitor through the door that you are not interested.
Should you have concerns about the person knocking on your door, particularly their actions or behavior, don't hesitate to call our non-emergency number (972-292-6010) or 9-1-1. Any information you can provide about the person (face, clothing, distinguishing features, direction of travel, vehicle, etc.) may prove beneficial to responding officers. However, do not put yourself in harm's way to get this information.
