Community Concerned About Graffiti
Graffiti is a serious crime that impacts all members of the community. Removing graffiti and repairing the damage it causes costs community tax dollars. Properties can be devalued and business owners can lose customers from the negative image that graffiti generates. Moreover, the presence of graffiti can send the message that a community is in decline or over-ridden with crime.
You can help reduce graffiti by immediately reporting all graffiti sightings on public property or in a public right-of-way. The faster graffiti is cleaned up, the less it appears. The crews either remove graffiti through water blasting or paint-overs. To report graffiti that has occurred on public property, including street signs, call the Street Department at 903-892-7254 or you can report graffiti online by using our online request form.
