Graffiti ordinance concerns victim

Only one reported case of graffiti popped up in the past year and a half in the City of Montrose, but the low incidence rate is hitting the city’s wallet harder than expected. City officials hope to eliminate an anti-graffiti account failing to fund removal projects.

According to a report run by City Finance Director Shani Wittenberg, approximately $50,000 has been put toward graffiti removal since 2017.
