Beginning July 1, 2015, each solicitor conducting business in unincorporated Lake County will be required to carry a Certificate of Registration per Lake County ordinance.
The ordinance applies to all vendors seeking purchases or orders for any items or services. Certificate of Registration will be issued at the time of application and is not transferable to another person, business, or employer. In-person registration is available only at the Lake County Clerk’s office, during regular business hours. Certificates will automatically expire on December 31st of each year and must be renewed yearly.
To register, every solicitor must provide:
Valid government-issued photo identification
Name, address, and date of birth
Name and address of represented company
Product or service to be solicited
There is no fee for applying or receiving the Certificate of Registration, but there will be a small cost for replacement certificate copies.
