Handbill permits may be obtained through the Finance Department, or Handbill Permit Application (PDF).  Permits are valid for the calendar year.  Distribution is allowed between the hours of 8 a.m. through 6 p.m.  The City maintains a list of addresses which have requested to be placed on the “do not distribute” list.  This list is given to every distributor upon approval.  Handbills need to be placed in a manner that will not create litter and there is no placement allowed on vehicles.  The information below is an excerpt from the La Verne Municipal Code.  Complete information may be obtained by calling the Finance Department at 909-596-8716 or by looking at the La Verne Municipal Code Chapter 5.36.111
