From staff reports
Sugarcreek Borough police say there has been a recent uptick in reports of individuals trying to sell or offer goods and services to residents and businesses in the borough.
Police said these individuals must acquire a solicitation permit through the borough. The permit must be approved before individuals can attempt to sell goods and services within the borough, police said.
“If they fail to show a permit that is valid, close the door and contact law enforcement,” police said.
Police said ignoring the permit process is a direct violation of a borough ordinance, and any person caught violating the ordinance will face charges.
Solicitation permits can be applied for at the borough office at 212 Fox St.
