Ain’t no Banksy here. Revelstoke has an awful graffiti problem — not an awful lot of it

City of Revelstoke to make businesses deal with graffiti

City property owners are being asked to remove graffiti. The polite ask lasts until Oct. 1, then the city will do it and bill businesses.

Revelstoke city council wants city property owners to clean up the graffiti on their buildings, so they’re starting a public outreach and enforcement campaign.

Currently, property owners are required to remove graffiti from their buildings when asked by the city. If they don’t comply on time, city crews will remove the graffiti and hand them the bill.

The latest enforcement initiative was prompted by members of city council, who asked city staff to get on top of the file.

The city is working with the Chamber of Commerce on the issue. They’re planning public outreach during August and will then start a notification to businesses in September.

October 1 is the deadline to comply. If you think you can remove or cover the graffiti for cheaper than the city crews, you’ll need to have it done before that date.
