ST. PETERS, Mo. (KSDK) - The City of St. Peters is discouraging residents from painting their address numbers on street curbs.
According to city spokesman David Fults, some residents have reported that there are solicitors attempting to sell a service to paint address numbers on curbs. Fults also says that the city does not recommend that residents purchase this service and that the city is unaffiliated with these solicitors.
Emergency agencies prefer that address numbers are placed on the front of the home near the front door or above a garage door that can be easily seen from the street. Address numbers that are painted on the curb can easily be blocked by vehicles, snow and ice in the winter, along with other obstacles.
The city encourages residents that are approached by a solicitor that claims to be affiliated with the City of St. Peters to please contact the St. Peters Citizen Action Center 636-477-6600, ext. 1225, for AT&T customers and 636-278-2244, ext. 1225 for CenturyLink customers.
