Commercial Solicitation Ordinance to be Revised
Chatham Borough is in the process of amending its current Ordinance regulating commercial peddlers, solicitors and canvassers in order to comply with recent court rulings concerning constitutional rights of commercial solicitors offering to sell products or services door-to-door. As a result of the court rulings, door-to-door commercial solicitation by licensed individuals would be allowed between 9am and 9pm. Chatham Borough maintains a Do Not Knock Registry, which is a listing of residential addresses at which door-to-door commercial solicitation is prohibited. Households wishing to opt out of door-to-door commercial solicitations can submit a Do Not Knock Registry application to the Borough Clerk to place their address on the list. The Do Not Knock Registry is entirely voluntary.

More than 70 percent of calls made to emergency 9-1-1 come from mobile phones.
