License Requirement information

Who has to apply?

If you want to engage in transient sales, our township ordinance requires that you apply for a Transient Sales License.  If you donít comply with the ordinanceís requirements, you may be charged with a misdemeanor offense or subjected to other penalties.

You may apply if you are soliciting for a school-approved fundraiser or other non-profit purpose, including religious solicitation at no charge.  However, it is not required.

How do I apply?

To apply, you must complete an application, which requires the following information: 

  • The businessís name,

  • The businessís local and permanent addresses,

  • The period during which the business will engage in transient sales, and

  •  A detailed description of the goods or services for sale.

In addition, each salesperson must provide a copy of his or her driverís license.

What requirements apply to my business vehicle?

If you will use a motor vehicle for your business, you must include the following for each motor vehicle:

  • The year, make, and model, and

  • Copies of the registration and proof of insurance.

How much does it cost to apply?

With your application, you must remit the following fees:

  • A $25 nonrefundable fee for each 30-day period that the license is in effect, and

  • A $250 cash bond.

The Township will hold the cash bond for 30 days after the license expires.  It will be returned to you at that time.  However, the cash bond may be held in whole or in part if any Township resident claims to have been cheated by your business or otherwise disturbed by your business.

What else should I know about transient sales in the Township?

You must not engage in transient sales before 10 a.m. or after 9 p.m.  Sound from your motor vehicle (for example, music from an ice cream truck) must be at a reasonable volume.
