Solicitor & Transient Vendor Registration Process

  1. Complete Registration Form. Each Representative of the Vendor (“Representative” or salesperson) will need a State ID or other approved identification. One application needs to be completed per federal tax identification number. Multiple solicitors from the same organization can be listed on one application. The Applicant (the individual completing the application on behalf of the Transient Vendor or company) must provide the fee after applications are approved.  $50 for the first individual with a $10 fee per additional Representative affiliated with the same organization up to a maximum of $150.
  2. The Organization must provide Liberty Township with a photocopy each ID and a color headshot photo of each Representative. These items must accompany the application. Liberty Township will forward the application and IDs to the designated BCSO personnel.
  3. Liberty Township will inform the Applicant when the badges, approved application, Do No Solicit List, and any additional paperwork are ready to be picked up. It is not necessary for all solicitors to be present during this pick up. These items must be picked up by the Applicant only. No solicitation shall commence until the paperwork and badges are completed, approved,  picked up and fees are paid.
