The City of Wilton Manors has clearly defined Ordinance regulating door-to-door canvassing, which includes leaving door hangers or flyers relative to open houses or property sale. Solicitation and Canvassing is defined in Sec. 10-137 as:
Unless otherwise provided for herein, for the purposes of this article, the term "solicitor" or "canvasser" means any person who attempts to solicit orders for the sale of goods, wares or merchandise, whether the sale is consummated in the city or to be consummated when approved by some other person elsewhere, or who bargains to sell any goods, wares or merchandise for cash or otherwise, by sample or by any other manner, personal property of any nature whatsoever, or for services to be furnished or performed, for present or future delivery, traveling by foot, wagon, automobile, motor truck, or any type of conveyance, from place to place, from house to house, including any person collecting or soliciting contributions or donations, cash, services, signatures, or otherwise, including any person who aids, abets, or otherwise authorizes and instructs another, on their behalf, to solicit or canvass to any charitable, nonprofit, or other eleemosynary organization; provided that the provisions of this article should not be applicable to any person who enters the residence or business of any resident of the city at the express prior request or invitation of such resident.
Such activity requires licensing pursuant to:
Sec. 10-138. - License—Required.
It shall be unlawful for any solicitor or canvasser to engage in such business or collection within the corporate limits without first obtaining a license therefor in compliance with the provisions of this article.
