How important do you think it is to get a press release out when you land a big account? Especially for a government customer? I am guessing this press release was sent out by the Texas Housing Authority but could a lawn care business owner also send one out themselves to promote that they landed a large public job?

HATT hires lawn care business (http://www.texarkanagazette.com/news/localnews/2008/02/22/hatt-hires-lawn-care-business-1.php) - The Texarkana, Texas, Housing Authority Board of Commissioners agreed Thursday to hire a Mount Pleasant-based lawn care firm to take care of the public housing complexes.

During its regular monthly meeting, the board approved of hiring J&S Lawn Care for $103,230 to take care of the lawns at the seven public housing complexes and clear grass clippings from the sidewalks, curbs and streets.
