PROGRESS GRAFFITI CALLS
If you see graffiti vandalism
in progress, call 9-1-1. Useful information that you can provide includes:
description of those doing the graffiti and their vehicle (if there
is one). Do not approach those involved in what you believe
is illegal activity. See
the Police Department's Graffiti page for additional information.
All citizens can report
graffiti by calling the "GEAR" (Graffiti Eradication Abatement
Response) Hotline at (303) 774-GEAR / (303) 774-4327. A Code Enforcement
Inspector will receive your message, and may contact you for more information.
Or, you can use the online form. This will help the Code Enforcement
to find the graffiti, and write to the property owner to inform them
of their responsibility to remove the graffiti in a timely manner.
The City is asking for your help
in removing the graffiti that has been placed on your property. You
may choose to remove the graffiti yourself, in a manner you deem most
appropriate for your situation. If you are unable to remove the graffiti
yourself, the City is prepared to offer you assistance in the form of
labor, materials or both. There are limitations on what style of removal
the City can offer, and you can get more information on that by contacting
Code Enforcement at (303) 651-8453 or (303) 651-8695.
There is no cost to you
for voluntarily working with the City to get the graffiti removed.
If you fail to remove the graffiti,
or request assistance from the City in removal of the graffiti within
10 days, the City will hire a private contractor and cause removal of
the graffiti and assess all costs, plus a twenty percent administrative
service charge. Such costs for removal will be certified as a charge
and lien against the property.
