Anyone** wishing to solicit within the borough needs to complete a solicitation permit request form. The form may be filled out ahead of time but must be returned IN PERSON with the applicant's valid PA Driver's License, insurance card, and vehicle registration card. A background check is performed for each person applying for a permit (this usually takes between 5-7 days). There are fees associated when applying for a permit - $75.00/for the first permit and $50.00 for each additional person. The permit is good for a 6-month period. Permits are contingent upon successful completion of applicant criminal background check and final approval by the Chief of Police.
**Non-profit organizations are excluded from the application process however, non-profit organizations need to contact the Chief of Police and inform the department, in writing, solicitation dates, what they will be soliciting, how many people will be in the area, and a copy of a valid photo ID for each person.
