Sussex mulls special ID for door-to-door peddlers

Village board members Tuesday night discussed the idea of having vendors that sell door-to-door wear a ID badge. The proposal is being presented by Trustee Jason Wagner who said he has received concerns from constituents over transient merchants who are knocking on their doors.

Wagner said while the village already requires the salespeople to register for a permit to be able to sell their product in Sussex, many do so without the permit. He also said some residents may feel uncomfortable about asking to see their permit and if they wore a badge there would be no question they were approved to be knocking on doors in the village.

Trustees Pat Tetzlaff and Bob Zarzynski were not enthusiastic about the new requirement. They said the cons of increased work by staff outweighed the pros. Tetzlaff also cautioned that residents might assume whatever product a vendor wearing a badge with a village logo on it would be endorsed by the village.

The item was tabled until the next village board meeting so that two absent trustees could also comment.
