At the February 26th Workshop Meeting, the Town of Newburgh Supervisor Gil Piaquadio reminded all residents that the season for solicitors will begin soon.
Section 137 of the Town Code addresses peddlers. Before a solicitor goes door-to-door attempting to sell their goods, he/she must first complete an Application for a license with Town Clerk Andrew Zarutskie. If all criteria is met, then the solicitor will be issued a license.
This is also true of persons establishing a temporary business (such as a food vending wagon).
If a solicitor comes to your door, ask to see their permit. You could also call the Town Clerk at 845-564-4554 or Town of Newburgh Police at 845-564-1100 for verification.
