Master Permits
A master permit with payment of a $75 fee and individual permits for those soliciting under the master permit with a $20 fee must be applied for once every six months.   Solicitors that require a contract or the payment of any amount prior to delivery of merchandise or services must post a $5,000 surety bond with the Town of Flower Mound before a permit is issued.  All solicitors must undergo a criminal background check before their permit can be approved.  The application fees are non-refundable.  To ensure that permits are issued without delay all solicitors should contact Police Records at 972-874-3328 for an appointment to complete the application process.  Large groups of solicitors without an appointment may be asked to return at a later date to complete the application process.
