DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Des Moines City Council is set to consider restrictions on door-to-door peddlers of everything from magazine subscriptions to vacuum cleaners.
The Des Moines Register reports that the City Council is set to vote on the matter Monday night.
The move comes months after Councilwoman Christine Hensley first suggested restrictions after several residents complained of aggressive door-to-door peddlers.
The restrictions would include rules that would limit door-to-door solicitations to between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., as well as requirements for peddlers to acquire a city permit. Getting a permit would require a $400 bond and background check asking whether applicants are registered sex offenders.
