Joliet lifts COVID-19 limits on solicitation

Joliet has called off COVID-19 restrictions on door-to-door and street solicitation.

Both, which include donation solicitations at busy intersections, were suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Anyone seeking to solicit via intersection/street or door-to-door must complete an application and meet all outlined requirements and application fees,” the city said in a news release issued Thursday.

Intersection solicitation is limited to nonprofit organizations that meet requirements outlined on an application that can be found on the city website.

Door-to-door solicitation is intended for businesses only and also requires city approval through an application.

Residents are advised to request a copy of the solicitor’s permit issued by the city and to call 911 if the solicitor refuses to show a permit.

The city also bars door-to-door solicitation at residences that prominently post notices near the entrance prohibiting solicitation or canvassing.

Call the city at 815-724-3100 for questions about door-to-door solicitation.
