Lafourche Parish May Cut Door-To-Door Sales Hours
THIBODAUX, LA (AP) — A proposal before the Lafourche Parish Council would end door-to-door sales at sunset each day.
The Daily Comet’s Chris Leblanc reports that the council probably will vote Tuesday on the proposal by Councilman Joe Fertitta.
Fertitta says several people have complained that their mothers were frightened when door-to-door salesmen knocked on their doors after dark.
The current ordinance allows such sales from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Fertitta's proposal would make that sunrise to sunset.
Violators could get up to 30 days in jail and a $500 fine.
Councilman Phillip Gouaux says he thinks door-to-door sales are obsolete and should be banned.
He says he also plans to file an ordinance against roadside donation drives. He says those are dangerous and back up traffic.
