Restrictions and Requirements
The City of Midlothian Police Department’s goal is to ensure the safety and privacy of its residents and provide a reasonable limit to the hours of soliciting for door-to-door solicitor and mobile food vendors in residential neighborhoods.
All persons soliciting, distributing advertising material or handbills or operating mobile food units in neighborhoods are required to have a City of Midlothian Solicitor Permit.
Persons are not allowed to go door to door or operate a mobile food establishment without first being issued a solicitor’s permit through the City of Midlothian.
Solicitor Permits are NOT required for person distributing literature door to door for religious organizations, political speech or campaigning, charitable purposes with non-profit status, civic groups, local school fundraisers, Boy or Girl Scout fundraising or sales, or where there is a regular business, trade, service or other contractual relationship with the occupant of the residence.
