Door-to-door advocates (persons canvassing for political, religious, or other noncommercial causes) are not required to register with, or be licensed by the city. The list of information required to be submitted for a license has been expanded. Grounds for denial of an application for a license and standards of conduct while conducting business are specified. An application for a license may be denied or, once issued, suspended or revoked for a violation of these provisions. Property occupants may post notice at their residence that they do not wish to be approached in connection with door-to-door sales or advocacy activities. Persons dissatisfied with a city staff’s actions regarding the denial or revocation of a license may appeal the city council. The full text of ordinance No. _ is available for inspection at Cokato city hall during regular business hours.
