County commissioners delay peddlers ordinance action

Clark County commissioners on Tuesday delayed a vote on a proposed ordinance limiting the hours that peddlers can knock on doors of homes.

Commissioner Susan Brager, who brought the proposal forward, asked to hold the measure so officials could spend more time getting feedback and listening to concerns from the public.

A vote had been scheduled for Tuesday.

The proposal would forbid soliciting on private property between dusk and 9 a.m.

Limiting hours brought concerns from the door-to-door sales industry, given the early hour it becomes dusk in winter.

The proposal also would require peddlers to carry an identification card and be registered with Clark County Business Licensing.

The regulations would not affect people involved in religious or political activities.

Brager said she had brought the measure forward in response to concerns from constituents and that its main purpose is to promote safety and give law enforcement a tool.

The intent is about the “greater good,” Brager said, not to harm anyone who does door-to-door sales.
