Why would I need a Bill Poster License?

The distribution of flyers within the city limits requires a Bill Poster/Sample Distributor License. The fee for this type of license is $10 per day (per person) and takes 24-48 hours to process. Please be aware that if you are distributing flyers on private property, you must have the property owner’s permission indicated by their signature on the form (i.e., private parking lot). Additionally, you are responsible for picking up any of your flyers that may have been littered in the area.
