Graffiti can be removed from public or private property by the city’s Graffiti Blasters. Graffiti will either be painted over (if the graffiti is on a painted surface) or blasted off with a high pressure baking soda and water solution (if it is on brick, cement or stone). You can report graffiti that is on your property, public property or on someone else’s property.

If you would like to report graffiti, please contact our office. Be prepared to give us the exact address, type of material the surface is on (i.e. unpainted brick, metal, etc), where on the building the graffiti is, and if the graffiti is over 6 feet from the ground.
