Property owners now responsible for graffiti

WILMINGTON -- If a vandal spray-paints your wall with graffiti who should be responsible for cleaning it up? As of Monday in Wilmington: you. Property owners are now solely responsible for removal of graffiti. City officials say approximately 50 Wilmington property owners will be notified by mail that they're in violation of the ordinance. If the graffiti is not removed or covered by the property owner within 15 days, the city may issue a $100 per day fine.
