Niles graffitti legislation delayed again

Published: Thu, November 22, 2012 @ 6:59 p.m.


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.

The graffiti is not the fault of the store owners. Make the bums in jail clean it off. They need to earn their 3 meals aday.

Suggest removal:

It's in the owners' intersts for graffititi to be removed within a day . This discourages further graffititi . The artists are marking out territory . If the tags don't disappear quickly , it leads progressively to other crime in the area . Its not only the tagged property that ends up being affected .

However , public property is also tagged . It is probably most efficient & effective for one organization to patrol the whole city & eradicate graffititi as soon as it appears . The contract should be bid for .

If the City doesn't do this , individual property owners should do their own buildings anyway .

Suggest removal:
