Description

Graffiti abatement. Provides that localities may, by ordinance, undertake or contract for the removal or repair of the defacement of any public structure, and that such ordinances shall provide for notice to be sent to the property owner stating that the property owner has 15 days to remove or repair the defacement before the locality will have such defacement removed or repaired by its agents or employees. Further permits courts to order any person convicted of unlawfully defacing property to pay full or partial restitution to the locality for costs incurred by the locality in removing or repairing the defacement.
