Solicitor Permits


Soliciting in Clyde Hill is allowed, but within a set of guidelines. The City's ability to regulate solicitors has been limited by a series of Court decisions. The Courts have said that the City cannot prohibit all solicitation because these rights are protected. Exempt organizations include charitable, religious or non-profit organizations as defined in the Code. However, the City can, and has, developed a set of solicitation regulations that are specified in Chapter 5.16 of the Clyde Hill Municipal Code.

Peddlers or solicitors must obtain a permit before going door-to-door in the City. To apply for a permit you must visit the Police Department during normal business hours, with photo ID, to fill out an application. The application cost is $27 and is non-refundable. Cash or checks are the only acceptable methods of payment. A background check will be completed for each solicitor and denial of a permit may be warranted based on that check.

Solicitations are NOT allowed after 8pm or before 9am and you must wear the permit issued to you by the Police Department.

Residents are encouraged to find out more about the legitimacy of an organization prior to donating funds. The City and the Police Department are not affiliated with any door-to-door or phone solicitation.
