The Mint Hill Board of Commissioners discussed graffiti and peddling at a short meeting May 23.
The issue of graffiti was first brought to the council a few weeks ago, after some property in town had been vandalized with spray paint. The Town is looking into ways to establish a town policy for cleaning up graffiti, and instructed town staff to procure estimates of clean-up cost.
Town manager Brian Welch informed the board that the cost to the town for the clean up of 25 square feet of graffiti would cost $500, with labor, time, and equipment all accounted for within that cost.
Board members further discussed specifics of a potential ordinance, including the definition of graffiti, time allotted for property owners to clean up the graffiti themselves, and punishment for persons caught vandalizing property with graffiti.
