The City Code also requires the solicitor to display their permit upon the request of any person. If the solictor is unable to provide a permit, they are not in compliance with the City Ordinance. For detailed information regarding this topic, please refer to the City Code, Chapter 17, which is available on the City of Jacksonville website: www.ci.jacksonville.nc.us We encourage our citizens to report any suspcious activity immediately to the police department by calling 911 stated Police Chief Mike Yaniero.
