Cottage Grove requires permits for solicitors. The permit process requires background checks and a check of other locations where they do business. When a permit is granted the solicitor is made aware of hours of operation, etc.

While most solicitors follow the rules, occasionally a group or individual does not. Remember if you encounter a solicitor that conducts business in a way that violates the City's code or they are not licensed, please contact the Cottage Grove Police Department at 651-439-9381.
Residents can ban door-to-door sales on your property by posting a “No Peddlers or Solicitors” sign.
