Upon failure of persons to comply with the notice by the designated date, the City is authorized to cause the graffiti to be abated by City forces or by private contractor, and the City or its private contractor is authorized to enter upon the premises for such purposes using any lawful means. All reasonable efforts to minimize damage from such entry shall be taken by the City, and any paint used to obliterate or cover graffiti shall be as close as practicable to background color(s). If the City provides for the removal of the graffiti, the City shall not authorize nor undertake to provide for the painting or repair of any more extensive area than the area where the graffiti is located, unless the City determines that a more extensive area is required to be repainted or repaired in order to avoid an aesthetic disfigurement to the neighborhood or community. All aspects of graffiti removal are at the discretion of the City including, but not limited to, the method of and material used for repair.

Property owners may consent in advance to City entry onto private property for graffiti removal purposes. [Ord. 533 § 2, 2011.]
