A Reminder About Door-to-Door Solicitors
Not everone who comes to your door selling goods and services, asking for you to hear their message or requesting assisitance, has nefarious intents, but sadly, many do. In order to protect us all, the WoodCreek Civic Association in concert with the City of Farmington Hills has defined WoodCreek as a No Peddling or Soliciting Zone with posted notification signs.
While there are some exceptions to this ordinance that allows some type of soliciting to be conducted in our neighborhood ALL SOLICITORS must be registered with the Farmington Hills city clerk. When solicitors come to your door they must display, on their person, a city issued Identification badge like that illustrated. If the ID badge is not displayed or you have any issue with a solicitor give the Farmington Hills Police Department a call at 248-871-2600 and let them check it out and take the appropriate action.
