developing a program that would remove graffiti on private properties in

The new program would utilize a contractor to respond to reports of
graffiti and to remove graffiti on private property at no charge, with the
property owners consent. The county will hold 2 public virtual meetings
in November to talk about the program; they are scheduled for Monday,
November 7 and Wednesday, November 9 at 6pm. For more information:
