City Of Spencer Issues Reminder For Peddlers And Solicitors Looking To Come To Town During Clay County Fair
Wed 8-19-2015 
(Spencer)-- The city of Spencer has a reminder for those looking to use the Clay County Fair as an opportunity to do some door-to-door soliciting or those looking to sell merchandise on the side of streets or other public property. City officials say those types of merchants need to be licensed by the city. Licenses are available at the Spencer City Hall. The cost is $25 for the license itself, along with an additional five dollars for each day the license is in effect. A cash or equivalent $500 bond is also required, and a police check is conducted on every applicant.
City officials say the confines of the Clay County Fairgrounds are exempt from the requirement.
