On Wednesday, September 30, the City Council passed legislation to speed graffiti clean up. Thanks to the new legislation, property owners will automatically benefit from Graffiti Free NYC.
Thus far, property owners targeted by graffiti vandals had to sign and file a waiver in order to benefit from Graffiti Free NYC, clean up administered by the city. No longer. In addition, property owners who turn down Graffiti Free NYC will be fined if they fail to clean up graffiti themselves
Councilman James Vacca co-sponsored the new legislation. Vacca fields graffiti complaints from constituents; more than a hundred remain unresolved, in most cases because property owners have failed to sign and file Graffiti Free NYC waivers.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched Graffiti Free NYC in 2005.
