LAYTON, Utah (AP) -- Layton's City Council is closing the door on unregistered salespeople.
Council members have adopted an ordinance that requires door-to-door commercial solicitors to check in with the city before they start trying to sell their goods.
The ordinance requires vendors to carry a visible, laminated card, which is issued by the city. The certificate will be valid for a year. The penalty for violators is a class B misdemeanor.
The move is actually easing the current law, which prohibits all door-to-door commercial sales. Door-to-door sales bans have been challenged in other cities.
Layton also plans to require registration fees for door-to-door sales.
Charitable groups can still go door-to-door without registering with the city.
