Livingston Parish considering new peddlers permit
LIVINGSTON - A proposal to curtail door-to-door sales in Livingston Parish may see another round of changes before it is adopted.
The proposed ordinance would require solicitors to get a parish permit, including paying a $50 fee and getting a background check, before peddling their wares at private homes. The proposed rules also would limit the hours for those house calls and allow residents to ban them altogether by posting "No Solicitors" signs.
The push for new regulations came after former Councilman Chance Parent said an aggressive alarm company salesman knocked on his door after 9 p.m. recently and lied about having permission to be there.
The parish council will consider the proposal Thursday.
