Town Clerk

Peddler’s Permit

Before you get started

Anyone wishing to sell a product or service via door-to-door sales or from a vehicle in the Town of Colonie must have a valid permit issued by the Town Clerk.


Complete the application

Applications are available in our office or online and must be completed and accompanied by:

  • a copy of a current driver's license,
  • four passport-sized photos,
  • the applicant's signature must be notarized and
  • appropriate fee:
    • $300.00 for the first person applying from a company or organization.
    • $150.00 per person for each additional person from the same company or organization. Each person from a company or organization must apply for his/her own permit.
    • Those renewing a permit from the immediate previous year will pay $200 for the first applicant and $150.00 for each additional applicant.


Pass a background check

Once the completed application and the appropriate fees have been submitted, the application will be forwarded to the Colonie Police department for purposes of a background check. Once approved from the Police department, the permit will be immediately issued and remain valid through the end of the calendar year.

Keep in mind:

A peddler's permit issued by the Town of Colonie is not valid on Town-owned property (parks, etc.) or within the Village of Colonie, or on any property displaying a “No Solicitation” sign. A permit may be revoked if the rules are not followed, or if the Town receives complaints from residents.

All forms MUST be legible.
