FAIRFIELD, NJ — Fairfield Township Mayor James Gasparini urges residents to contact the Fairfield Township Police Department at 973-227-1400 if any solicitors knock on their doors.

“Clean Water is the only exception,” said Gasparini at the Fairfield mayor and council meeting on Monday.

Gasparini explained that NJ Environmental Federation for Clean Water Action is the only organization issued a solicitor license beginning Monday, Jan. 9 through Thursday, Feb. 9.

“No solicitor should be knocking on doors after 9:00 p.m.,” he said.

Canvassing hours are from Monday through Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. All solicitors have been issued a bright pink badge from the township clerk’s office and should be displayed for viewing, according to Gasparini.

Gasparini also emphasized that if a resident requested his address to be put on the “NO KNOCK” list, no one, including Clean Water, should be knocking on doors. If they do, the mayor is asking that residents immediately call the police.

The township has been receiving complaints from residents on the “NO KNOCK” list reporting that Clean Water is not paying attention to registered addresses.

If anyone would like his or her address put on the “NO KNOCK” list, contact the township clerk’s office at 973-882-2700 ext. 2501 or visit the township website at www.fairfieldnj.org to sign up online.
