I am a company outside of Findlay and want to solicit sales in Findlay. What do I need to do?


A Solicitor’s License must be obtained.

A background check and fingerprinting will be required for each employee of a business that plans to solicit within Findlay’s City limits.  Those services can be obtained from the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, the Findlay campus of Owens Community College, or the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles of Hancock County.

Once the Chief of Police and Service-Safety Director approves the results of the background check and fingerprinting a Solicitor’s License can be issued by the Mayor’s Office.  The fees for a Solicitor’s Licnese are $10.00 ($5.00 for the license and $5.00 for the required photo I.D.). (Different from a Vendor’s License)
