Snoqualmie requires peddlers to get a license, badge

The city of Snoqualmie is an advocate of business and fundraising in many forms. Door-to-door solicitation is allowed within city limits. However, certain rules apply.

All door-to-door solicitation companies or individuals working within the Snoqualmie city limits must have an active city of Snoqualmie temporary, door-to-door business license.

Solicitors must wear a badge issued by the city, which provides the name of the solicitor, the business license number, and the license expiration date. (Snoqualmie Municipal Code Title 5, Chapter 5.36.070).

Some legitimate solicitors neglect to obtain licenses and badges as required and can be directed to the city of Snoqualmie.

If residents answer the door for a solicitor who is unwilling to present a copy of their business license or otherwise causes them concern, they may report it to the Snoqualmie Police Department at (425) 888-3333.

You may choose to be cautious and not answer the door for any unknown person.

Door-to-door business license information is available on the City of Snoqualmie website or by calling 425-888-1555. Solicitors may obtain a temporary business license application and badge at Snoqualmie City Hall, located at 38624 SE River Street. The fee is $35 per individual for a period of seven days.
