Graffiti is not art. It’s vandalism. It’s painting, drawing, scribbling or “tagging” on any surface without the permission of the property owner.
If you see any form of graffiti vandalism in progress, please call 9-1-1 right away and report the crime to the police.
Effective Ways to Deal with Graffiti
We need your help to get rid of graffiti. The faster we hear about and remove it, the less likely it is to spread or re-appear.
We remove graffiti on a “first come, first served” basis. The sooner we hear about it, the sooner we’ll get rid of it. If it contains offensive material, we’ll remove it as quickly as possible.
We proudly work with police, school groups and volunteers to keep our community vibrant and clean of graffiti.
