Today, the Department of Public Works (DPW) announced a modified restart of Graffiti Removal Services. Going forward, graffiti will only be removed from public property and public assets, such as light poles, statues, etc. DPW will no longer provide removal services for private property and will instead refer inquiries to local service providers.

“DPW stands ready and willing to again provide Graffiti Removal Services to City buildings and we are excited to support another priority of Mayor Scott’s administration,” said Acting Director Jason W. Mitchell.

The restart of the Graffiti Removal Program will consist of three crews. DPW expects a large backlog of requests since citywide removal services have been suspended since July 2020 and it may take some time to work through the backlog of requests before addressing new ones. The service request (SR) number for graffiti will be reactivated in the 311 system today and the City will work to develop a preferred vendor list for residents and businesses who call 311 to request graffiti removal services on private property.
