Handbills or "flyers" attempting to sell something is generally illegal in Lakeland, unless the appropriate Permit is obtained. We have received seveal calls about unauthorized sales solicitations being left at Lakeland resident's houses.
Generally, literature left by religious organizations, schools etc. and political campaigning (during the authorized campaign period) is exempt from this requirement.
We do request all organizations or individuals to monitor placement of flyers and handbills so that they do not become "litter" and blow around the neighborhood.
If you have a question or need additional information on this, please call Code Enforcement at Lakeland City Hall, 867-2717
