You can now place your address on the Do Not Knock Registry. Once your address is on the registry, the Township will send you a sticker that must be displayed on or near your front door or window. If you sign up for this registry and display the sticker, all people going door to door are prohibited from knocking on your door.
This registry excludes those representing any entity exempt from taxation under Section 5709.04 of the Ohio Revised Code (i.e. students selling items for school fundraisers, Boy/Girl Scouts, etc.)
The Do Not Knock Registry does not apply to any person going door to door, that you personally invite onto your property.
Once your address is added to the Do Not Knock Registry, your address stays on the list until:
The Township receives notice/request for removal; or
The Township receives notices that you are no longer residing at the registered address; or
On December 31st of the 5th full calendar year from the date that the address was submitted.
If you are registered on the Do Not Knock Registry and have a complaint of a solicitor knocking on your door, please contact the Franklin County Sherriff's Department non-emergency number at 614-525-3333.
