For the second consecutive meeting, the third reading of an ordinance requiring property owners or occupants to remove graffiti from their buildings has been placed on hold by city council.
The ordinance was introduced in early October.
Under one of the provisions, owners would have to remove the graffiti within 10 days after receiving notice from the zoning inspector. If they fail to comply within the 10-day period, the city would remove the graffiti, charge the labor and other costs on the tax duplicate and place a lien on the property.
The latest delay stems from a request from the city planning commission for changes in the ordinance.
