We were made aware that people are going door to door stating they are with the City and Police/Fire Departments and have been sent to paint house numbers on curbs.
While the Public Safety Departments encourage homeowners to have their address prominently displayed out front, we can assure you that we are not requiring or endorsing any service that may be going door to door selling the curb painting of house numbers. Should you encounter someone doing this, give dispatch a ring and provide them with a description of the subjects (817-281-1000) or check their solicitor permit status via the city website.

Having a properly numbered house does make it safer for first responders and residents, as it allows us to locate and access locations faster. But again, curbside addresses are neither a requirement or an endorsement effort by the City or Police/Fire Departments.
