In an effort to constantly eradicate unsightly graffiti, the City of Olathe has an ordinance (6.06.040) requiring property owners to remove the graffiti within 5 days of notice. Graffiti left on property can multiply and be a magnet for other types of criminal activity, giving the impression that the neighborhood “does not care”.
Help us catch the vandals! A clear message must be sent to those responsible that this type of activity will not be tolerated. Report all suspicious activity including loitering. Immediately report and clean the graffiti. Use increased lighting around vulnerable areas. Don’t allow vandals to take away the pride we have for our city.
