The vendor does not have a license and their notice did not list any address, phone number or any contact point.
We have notified the Shelby County Sheriff Department and encourage citizens not to buy from "door to door" businesses, since this is illegal in Lakeland and purchasing from them only encourages illegal behavior.
The Notice reads as follows. The copy I have was on a red piece of paper:
**NEIGHBORHOOD ADDRESS PROGRAM**
REFLECTIVE ADDRESS NUMBERS ARE BEING PIANTED ON THE CURB
Your Street will be worked on starting tomorrow. We are trying to install individual house numbers straight down the street, so in case of an emergency, especially at night, your home can be found a lot easier by ambulances, patrol cars, fire departments, cabs, repair and delivery persons. Statistics show that 75% of our homes are inadequately numbered for night use, and that’s hen these numbers really stand out.
We are doing something different. Instead of just painting numbers on the curb, we first put down a Midnight Black background, then apply large 4” white Night Vision numbers on top of he black background. This system is very attractive, extremely durable, and the numbers show up at night like street and interstate signs brilliantly reflective.
The cost of this professionally installed service is only $5.00 cash or check. A courteous representative will collect after the Reflective numbers have been installed. If not at home payment instructions will be left.
To be include…Print your house number on the back of this notice and put it on the inside olf a window so it can be seen from the street. We will not install you address numbers unless this slip is in the window.
