Latest City Ordinance Aims to Curb Solicitation Issue

Posted: Updated:

A new city ordinance is aimed at keeping solicitors off your property.

Under the new ordinance, solicitation of any kind is now punishable with a stiffer penalty: Up to $1,200 in fines or a maximum of six months in jail.

That is if a property owner has a sign posted or asks the solicitor to leave. Some Tulsans said that alone is a major problem they see on a regular basis.

Additionally, the ordinance law also keeps solicitors from coming to your home between the hours of 7 p.m. and 8 a.m.

But other residents think most solicitation is harmless and that Tulsa should focus its energy on other issues.

"I think that most people are pretty innocent and they're just trying to sell what they want to sell or just talk to you," midtown resident Meg Hartman said.
