PALATKA, Fla. -- The Palatka Police Department is looking into flyers that have been distributed in several Palatka neighborhoods.
The flyers are titled "Operation House ID" and are being taped to residents' mailboxes in several neighborhoods. Multiple residents have filed complaints with the police, according to a release from the Palatka Police Department.
The flyer advertises homeowners can pay $20 and have reflective house numbers painted on their driveway.
The police said the business is not connected to the City of Palatka or Putnam County in any way.
City ordinance 70-83, the release said, says houses must have the house number properly displayed on the front of the house. Painted numbers on the driveway will not comply with the ordinance.
It is also a violation of a city ordinance to distribute handbills or solicit door to door.
Palatka police are asking any residents who notice additional solicitations such as this one to contact the Palatka Police Department at 386-329-0115 or 386-329-0800.
