The Leon Valley Police Department wants to help promote a healthy economic environment for businesses, while maintaining an orderly form of conduct free of hassles and undue burdens to our local businesses.
Under the provisions of the City Code of Leon Valley, all businesses must obtain a peddler's permit to actively engage in the practice of door-to-door and telephone soliciting sales.
When calling upon a location in person, or when soliciting by telephone, the solicitor will clearly state the nature of his/her business and the reason for calling. Upon indication by any resident that they are not interested in the merchandise, books, magazines, services, etc., being offered by bearer of the permit, the peddler is required to promptly leave the premises or terminate the phone discussion without argument or insistence. Complaints received against peddlers will be deemed sufficient cause to revoke their permit and may warrant a fine.
