The city of Tacoma, WA has seen graffiti reports double in the past year. In order to try and combat this, they are teaming up with Goodwill to create a faster response program to get rid of the graffiti. This new program will paint over or remove the graffiti within 72 hours of a report to the city at no cost to the owner of the property. This service will be available up to 3 times in a 12 month period to those property owners who sign consent. As of now property owners must remove the graffiti within 18 days or it’ll be removed by the city and billed to the owner. This new program hopes that this quick response will keep graffiti from reappearing.
