There has been a slight increase in graffiti since the New Year. Utility boxes, signs, and fences have been tagged. Our Public Works staff have worked quickly to remove graffiti throughout the City along the right of way. However, we need the community’s help to make sure graffiti is removed. It is the property owner’s responsibility to remove or cover graffiti from their property. It is ideal to remove graffiti 24 to 48 hours of noticing it as this can help reduce future vandalism on the property.
You can use our online graffiti reporting tool to let us know about graffiti in your neighborhood or you can call City Hall at (503) 667-6211. If you are a victim of graffiti vandalism, the City can help. We offer no-cost kits that you may use to remove graffiti from your property. Let’s be a clean and graffiti-free City!
