My fence or property has been tagged. What do I do about graffiti?

In an effort to prevent graffiti in South Salt Lake, enforcement efforts are being increased to have graffiti removed as quickly as possible. Property owners are responsible and liable for the care and upkeep of their properties, which includes the removal of graffiti. 

Graffiti on private property must be removed as soon as possible to discourage repeat occurrences. The sooner the graffiti is removed the less likely it will become tagged again.

South Salt Lake code states that the owner or tenant or any person in possession of or in control of real property who shall fail to remove any drawing, inscription or writing, commonly known as "graffiti," which was written or drawn so as to be seen by the public, within seven days after having been notified to do so, shall be guilty of a Class B misdemeanor.

To report graffiti, contact our SSL Neighborhoods Connect Line at 801-464-6757,, and South Salt Lake Non-Emergency Dispatch at 801-840-4000.
