Carmel City Code Section 4-26 door-to-door solicitation shall include all methods and means of selling commercial products, services or property within the corporate limits of the City of Carmel, Indiana by and through uninvited in-person solicitation of persons located on residential property.
Door-to-door solicitation by vendors may be conducted (with a valid license) in the City between the hours of 9 a.m. and dusk. (Carmel City Ordinance 4-26(c)(1)) However, the issuance of a license and identification card does not empower a vendor or their employees and agents to ignore “no solicitation” signs or to fail to immediately abide by other lawful requests to not trespass on private property. (Carmel City Ordinance 4-26(c)(3))
If the solicitor is still in your area, call dispatch at 317.571.2580 or 911 for emergencies.
Exempt solicitors include any person aged 17 years or younger and any person or entity engaged in protected religious or political speech or activity who, due to the pre-exemption of applicable federal or state law, is exempt from local licensing requirements
