How do I apply for a solicitors / peddlers permit?
  • You must submit an application, 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 (PDF) ahead of time, but you must submit your application in person to the Melissa Police Department (2nd Floor of Melissa City Hall, 3411 Barker Avenue) Normal business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm.
  • 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.

Additional Information

  • Once you submit your application, a background check will be completed and a photo identification and paper permit will be issued to you. This can take up to 7 business days.
  • Any questions should be emailed to Officer Brandi Davidson or by calling 972-838-2033.
