DRAPER, Utah (AP) -- First there was the do-not-call list. Now, in Draper, comes the do-not-contact list for residents who don't want to be bothered by door-to-door solicitors.
The city originally prohibited door-to-door peddling, but officials were told it was not legal. They now have approved an ordinance allowing residential sales as long as the solicitors buy a license from the city.
As part of that ordinance, the city has created a do-not-contact list for residents who don't want to be bothered.
"At the request of our residents, we added the do-not-contact list to assure the privacy of our community members who did not want to be solicited in their home." city spokeswoman Maridene Hancock said.
More than 300 people already have asked to be put on the list.
