You must submit a Solicitors Application (PDF), consent to a background check, and pay an annual fee of $50 to obtain a City of Melissa Solicitor’s Permit.
You may download and complete the application ahead of time, but you must submit your application in person to the Melissa Police Department on the 2nd Floor of Melissa City Hall located at 3411 Barker Avenue. Normal business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm.
Once you submit your application, a background check will be completed and a photo ID and paper permit will be issued to you. This can take up to 7 business days.
You will need to show your driver’s license, and submit a $50 annual fee with your application.
If you are a food truck vendor, you must submit a copy of your county health certificate before your application will be processed.
We take cash, checks, or a money order. Sorry we are not able to take credit card payments at this time.
Any questions should be directed to Officer Brandi Davidson by email or by calling 972-838-2033.
