Graffiti Section of City Code Amended
The Wheaton City Council voted 6-1 in favor of an ordinance that amends the City Code in regard to graffiti. The changes reduce the number of days a property owner has to remove graffiti from 30 to 10 and increase the minimum fine for violating this section of the City Code from $50 to $200. If a property is vandalized, Wheaton’s Public Works Department can provide information on solvents and the proper methods to remove graffiti.
