The Sherbrooke Police is advising the public to be wary of a private company that has been soliciting in the region for several days. The company offers decontamination of mold in attics by raising fears of serious health problems if nothing is done. The representatives of the supposed company show up without having an appointment and are very insistent, the police say. Door-to-door solicitation, whether for profit or not, is forbidden in the City of Sherbrooke unless a permit or authorization has been requested and obtained from the Service des finances. The City is recommending that citizens demand to see this permit or authorization when they are solicited at their home. If in doubt as to respect of municipal regulations, no one should hesitate to communicate with the Sherbrooke Police by calling 819-821-5555. Published in the Friday, May 25 edition of The Record.
