Lately there have been a large number of peddlers and solicitors in the South Lake Minnetonka Area. The City licenses these types of activities and does background checks on individuals to ensure safety for our residents. If they are licensed they will have a City-issued badge with their photo that clearly states they are licensed in the City of Excelsior. If they are not able to provide a badge please call 911 who will dispatch the South Lake Minnetonka Police Department. Please do not open your door to unknown people.
