One of the nice things about living in P.G. is that there are fewer annoying solicitors unlike Monterey. I see some hippy group once a year and the Witnesses occasionally, but it’s election time again and the canvassers are gearing up.
So the town of Rye is considering adopting a “do not knock” registry that would alert solicitors to the homes where they are not welcome.
Currently anyone going door to door, whether a vendor or on behalf of a non-profit group, needs a permit from the city clerk.
Under the new law, solicitors would have to obtain a copy of the registry and stay away from any address listed.
