Mayor Mike Bell, City Council President Joe McNamara, Council Members and City Administrators will go door to door at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 3, 2012 to remind citizens of the vital importance of renewing the city's ¾% income tax.

Not that it isn't nice that the Mayor and Council have found something that they are willing to go door-to-door for, but couldn't doing so be considered panhandling and a violation of municipal code?
