Addresses are not
required on curbs
Beware of possible
GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Aug. 17, 2009) Beware of a possible scam
regarding unauthorized flyers offering a $15 service of painting residence
addresses on the curb.
The City of Goodyear has learned that local residents in the Wildflower neighborhood are receiving
flyers misrepresenting the city fire code and advising residents that addresses
must be painted on curbs.
The flyer wrongly gives
the impression that the City's fire code requires curb addresses to be painted
on the curb, and asks residents in violation of this code to address this
issue. The official City of Goodyear logo appears at the top of the page and
gives the false impression that the flyer is being distributed by the City of Goodyear.
The City of Goodyear is not associated with the firm or individuals responsible for these flyers.
Addresses are NOT
required to be painted on the curb by Goodyear fire code.
The City of Goodyear wants residents to be alerted to the misinformation that is being distributed.
Residents and HOA
representatives in the Wildflower neighborhood (located south of Van Buren,
north of Yuma Road, west of Estrella Parkway, and east of Sarival) have
received the flyers that misrepresent the Goodyear fire code. An investigation
is currently being conducted by the city.
In the meantime, do not
be fooled! There is no requirement that addresses be painted on curbs in the
City of Goodyear!
