The City Secretary's Office processes and issues Solicitor's Permits. Any person desiring to conduct solicitation activities within the City of Richland Hills shall complete a written application and submit it to the City Secretary.
The permit shall be valid for one year following the date of its issuance. A person commits an offense if the person engages in solicitation activities in the City without a valid permit. Please see City Ordinance 1245-13 regarding Solicitors for more detailed information and exemptions.
