Anyone selling cleaning supplies, vacuums or other goods will be required to pay a registration fee of $50 a day, or $200 for a year. The police department will issue registrations.

The new process will help establish if the peddler or solicitor is verified. Concerned citizens may contact the Perham Police Department who may contact the parent company to make sure they are a true company.

An exception to this new fee will be included but not limited to scouts, schools, organized youth athletic leagues, educational, fraternal or related organizations.
