PERMIAN BASIN - City officials are reminding citizens to be cautious when opening the door to solicitors.

Residents should always ask for identifications and a city permit.

Any person who travels from house to house selling goods is required to have peddlers permit.

Peddlers cannot solicit before the hours of 9 a.m. and after 8 p.m. If a resident is ever suspicious they should call police.

Any found in violation of the ordinance can be charged and slapped with a fine of up to $500 dollars.
