Asheville City Leaders Meet With Contractors About Graffiti Removal

Posted: Updated:

The City of Asheville is continuing its push to clean up graffiti.

City leaders held a one-hour informational meeting for businesses Friday morning, interested in helping with graffiti removal work. During the meeting, they received the graffiti removal requirements, reviewed a sample contract and fee structure.

Businesses also received applications. Those are due by noon on Monday, June 16th. City leaders will accept the applications via email at cdaniels@ashevillenc.gov. You can also mail applications to the City of Asheville Graffiti Removal Application, P.O. Box 7148 in Asheville, NC 28802. Applications can also be dropped off at the Public Works office at 161 South Charlotte Street.

In April, Asheville City Council voted to fund a three-month anti-graffiti campaign. They'll spend $300,000 to remove graffiti from public properties this summer. It will also help cover 90% of the costs for removal from private buildings.

However, starting in October, the city will start billing the property owner for cleanup costs.
