Graffiti Success

I noticed some new graffiti on the guard rails near my house on Thursday.  But I forgot to call it in on Thursday or Friday.  Nonetheless, by Sunday, the guard rail had been painted over.

This is just the most recent example of one of the successes our city council majority isn't getting enough credit for.  Response times on graffiti abatement calls (and, it would appear, on proactive graffiti removal) has improved.

Graffiti is something that people have been complaining about for years.  But in the past year or so, the city has become much more effective at controlling graffiti.  Increased attentiveness by code and parking enforcement personnel are helping to make our city a more attractive place to live.  Yes, that may mean the occasional parking ticket or code enforcement warning/citation.  But if that's what it takes to improve our city, I'm all for it.
