Are solicitors permitted in Winnetka?

Residents and businesses may display "No Solicitors or Peddlers" signs on their property. Solicitors not heeding the signs are subject to the issuance of a citation. Every solicitor is required to carry a permit issued by the Village. Concerns about solicitors should be reported to the police department by calling 847-501-6034. 

Winnetka residents who do not wish to have solicitors visit them can request to have their homes included on a registry maintained by the police department. There is no charge for this service. To be included on the registry, email the police department or call 847-501-6034.
