ELKHART-- Concord Township has filed a complaint against an Illinois company trying to sell to local businesses recently.
The company, Firehouse Promotions Inc., is trying to sell marker boards -- basically small magnets displaying the company's information -- under the claim the business has a contract with the Concord Township Fire Department, according to Concord Township Trustee Deb Stoffer.
The company representatives are apparently asking local business owners to purchase the magnets and distribute them to the community, Stoffer said in a press release Tuesday.
The Concord Township Fire Department does not have a contract with the company, which also goes by the name Rainbow Gifts and Spirit Solutions, Stoffer said.
Concord Township has filed a complaint with the Indiana State Attorney General's Office, she said. The company has also been reported to the Better Business Bureau and the Illinois Attorney General's Office.
