City Council will vote in an amendment to the city's ordinance governing peddlers and solicitors at its meeting on Wednesday.
Ohio Citizen Action, an anti-pollution, non-profit organization has threatened to sue the city if it does not allow door-to-door solicitation until 9:00 p.m.
Section 840.02 (b) currently only allows door-to-door solicitations until 7:00 p.m., during Standard Time.
At council's workshop last week, council president David Basil said that this organization had successfully sued several other municipalities in northeast Ohio for similar reasons.
After discussion, council concurred in a desire to avoid costly litigation to the city.
Other items on Wednesday's agenda include a resolution authorizing the sale of unneeded city equipment and vehicles through online auction; an agreement with the City of Stow for cost sharing for the Norton road resurfacing project; a resolution authorizing the city manager to apply for grant funds for the safe routes to school projects and an ordinance to create a Pedestrian Linkage Fund that was suggested as part of the Safe Routes Hudson initiative.
