Any Transient Vendor who desires to engage in Door-to-Door Solicitation shall first obtain from the Whitestown Police Department a non-transferable Door-to Door Solicitation license ("License") permitting such activity by the Transient Vendor and/or Transient Vendor's employees and agents.
An Exempt Person shall not be required to obtain a License. However, no exemption shall be seen as giving any right to an Exempt Person (or any Transient Vendor) to trespass upon property, or to otherwise engage in Door-to-Door Solicitation at any private property against the will of the property owner or occupant, or where the words "No Solicitation" (or words of similar import) are displayed.
"Exempt Person" shall mean any of the following:
An individual while and to the extent, he or she is engaged in protected political speech or activity;
An individual while and to the extent, he or she is engaged in protected religious speech or activity;
An individual engaged in the solicitation of funds and/or sale of cookies, candies, paper products, or similar sundries solely for and on behalf of a not-for-profit or nonprofit organization or association that is exempt from the Indiana Gross Retail Tax;
An individual who, due to the preemption of applicable federal or state law, is exempt from local licensing requirements.
If the Transient Vendor intends to sell or offers to sell any type of food or beverage, the Whitestown Police Department shall refer the application to the Boone County Health Department for review and recommendation of whether any refrigeration equipment to be used by the Transient Vendor is acceptable and/or of whether the Transient Vendor meets applicable minimum sanitation requirements.
