Curb Painting Not Allowed in City of Ankeny

Post Date:06/15/2017 9:14 AM
SCAM ALERT: It has been brought to our attention that a solicitor has been taping flyers to mailboxes throughout Ankeny offering paint your home address on the curb in front of your house. Please be advised that this solicitation is not endorsed by the Ankeny Police or Fire departments. Curb painting is actually prohibited in the City of Ankeny.

The Ankeny Police and Fire departments do NOT use curb paintings to identify your address in emergency situations.

Several years ago the City made a policy decision to no longer allow curb painting on publicly owned streets due to fact that routine maintenance of streets and curbs creates damage to the curb painting.

This vendor is not an approved solicitor in the City of Ankeny and the service they are selling is prohibited.
