CURB PAINTING PROMOTED BY TRANSIENT BUSINESS NOT AUTHORIZED BY CITY OF
BOWLING GREEN

BOWLING GREEN, KY - A curb painting service being promoted by
flyers in Bowling Green neighborhoods is not authorized or endorsed by
the City of Bowling Green.  Residents in Cumberland Ridge and
Fieldstone Farms subdivisions may have already seen flyers advertising a
$25 "Neighborhood Address Program" which claims to be endorsed by
"CRIMEWATCH America".   

The City of Bowling Green cautions residents that the advertised service
to paint house numbers on the curbs is likely being promoted by a
transient business which is not licensed by the City of Bowling Green
and not authorized to paint curbing maintained by Bowling Green's
Public Works Department.  Further, while the City of Bowling Green has
participated in programs with the National Crime Prevention Council,
National Association of Town Watch, National Sheriff's Association, and
other nationwide crime prevention initiatives, it cannot confirm the
validity of a "Crimewatch America" as noted on the flyer being
circulated in Bowling Green.
