As promised, Fayetteville residents can now pick up or print out “no soliciting” signs and stickers.

The removable, exterior or interior stickers are available for free at the mayor’s or City Clerk’s office at the City Administration Building, 113 W. Mountain Street, or at the Fayetteville Development Services office, 125 W. Mountain Street. Additionally, the stickers can be printed using an online PDF provided by the city’s Development Services department.

City Council members in July adopted an ordinance requiring the city to provide the free stickers to any resident who requests one.

The ordinance also includes regulations requiring for-profit door-to-door sales businesses to pay $40 each year for a permit and $5 for each solicitor working inside the city limits. As part of the new law, salespeople are now subject to a criminal background check from the Arkansas State Police and are required to carry a visible photo ID and a copy of their company’s door-to-door permit. Violations would carry a fine of up to $500.

See our July 3 story for details about the ordinance, or visit the city’s website.
