At the Monday night Gillette City Council Workshop the council members took in information on the subject of itinerant merchants. On Monday, city administrator Carter Napier said some council members have heard complaints about the ability of out of town sale-persons to sell their wares door to door, while at the same time local business owners are not afforded the same access to potential costumers.
Council member Louis Carter King this morning described the discussion as informative and said she expects the council will move forward with adjusting language in the local ordinance, to make a more level playing field for local business owners. King sited local roofers as an example of businesses that lack the same opportunities as out of state roofers to sell door to door. King also said there was a lot of time spent on the topic on door to door sales efforts being a nuisance to some. King said the council stresses the option of home owners in Gillette to post a "no solicitation" notice on their doors.
