Commercial Solicitation in the Village

Have a question, comment, or complaint? If so, please leave us a comment. We look forward to hearing from you.

The Village may not prohibit door to door commercial solicitation from taking place within the Village due to existing Supreme Court rulings. However, the Village can require individual commercial solicitors to obtain permits and set hours during which solicitation may occur. Solicitors may work within the Village between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.

By village ordinance, legible signs must be displayed at your residence asking solicitors not to approach your home should you not want them there. "No Solicitors" signs are available at your local home improvement store.

When a commercial solicitor visits your home, If a permit for the Village of Gurnee is not observed, please notify the Police Department as soon as possible. You will be asked to give the dispatcher a description of the solicitor and the location. An officer will then be dispatched to investigate the situation. If you have more questions about commercial solicitors in the village please contact our crime prevention unit at 847-599-7080.
