Graffiti – Constant attention makes a difference

For those who find graffiti know that LB has an aggressive program of abatement. You call, they come. Unless the graffiti is on someone else’s property and then that property owner needs to call. Download the Go LB app. I use it weekly as I walk the neighborhood – it’s quick and effective. We had a break-out of graffiti that sprouted on the abandoned structures at E7th and Temple. This property, owned privately, continues under the superfund program due to the in-ground gas tanks. Unclear, when it can be sold and so forth. BUT it takes constant attention to keep the area neat and clean. Julie Bedard regularly calls up to volunteer to clear the weeds. And Devin Ablard, 2nd Council District Office helped get the structures clear of graffiti. Thank you both!
