For the last few months acts of graffiti have slowed down. However, tagging is still an ongoing issue that our Streets Division must tackle. Our “eye on the path” City Manager Jim Schutz, reported some very offensive graffiti and Tyler Nord and Gabe Dias immediately addressed it with a fresh coat of paint. Though we have installed signs in the area to discourage vandalism, it does not alleviate the issue as this is an ongoing problem. However, our crews are ready to quickly act especially if the graffiti is gang related or racially offensive. As a City we do not stand by hatred and bigotry.
