Graffiti, Section 11-9-7 The existence of graffiti on a public or private property is expressively declared to be a public nuisance and, therefore, is subject to the removal and abatement provisions specified in the full ordinance. It is the duty of both the owner and the responsible party of the property which the graffiti has been applied to at all times keep the property clear of graffiti.
Graffiti begets more graffiti. It is crucial that it be covered or removed as soon as it is discovered. Take a quick photo with your camera or cell phone and file an online police report. (If police officers aren't aware of a problem, they can do anything about it.) Products such as Kilz are available in spray cans as well as quart and gallon cans. Keep a spray can in your office or store to quickly cover gang signs or clandestine "artwork." If your building is stucco or a painted finish, you can keep a spray can, quart or gallon can on hand to cover the Kilz area after it dries. Visit PDA member stores G4 Coatings, 524 North Santa Fe Avenue, and Rush's Pueblo Lumber, 416 West 2nd Street, for graffiti removal or covering products.
