Graffiti is vandalism, a CRIME, and creates an atmosphere of neighborhood insecurity and lowers property values. It is economically detrimental to our City. When seen, it can create a sense of uneasiness and even fear. Therefore, it is important to remove it as soon as possible. The public is asked to report graffiti as soon as possible to Police and/or photograph it. Graffiti removal on private property is the responsibility of the owner. City of Puyallup Public Works employees in conjunction with available volunteers work to remove graffiti on City owned public property. All community members are asked to help with the removal of this blight from our City.
