Area business owners are being approached to advertise on a “Wilson County Emergency Services Directory” magnet.
Businesses are advised the company, County Court-house Magnet Services, is based in Kentucky; it is not affiliated with the Wilson County Emergency Man-
agement Office, according to LeAnn Hosek. The majority of contact numbers on the proposed magnet are national hotline numbers for various agencies.
Travis Smith at County Courthouse Magnet Services told the Wilson County News that the products are made available to the county clerk’s office for distribution.
Wilson County Clerk Eva Martinez, when asked about this, said, “I have never heard of them, never been approached by them, never seen these magnets.” Her office is not affiliated with this product, she stated with emphasis.
Sales information from this company states “... you will help your community ...”
Smith confirmed the magnet sales do not support any local emergency services or entities. His company has no local affiliations or ties, he said. Businesses that advertise receive “15 or 20” of the 8-1/2-inch by 11-1/2-inch magnets to distribute, Smith said.
A number of local businesses produce magnets for advertising purposes, and business owners can support the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office with ads on its annual calendar. Call Sgt. Erna Peterson at 830-393-2535 for more information about the calendar.
