Graffiti

How do I report graffiti located in the City of Tracy?

Public Property Graffiti:

Complaints of graffiti located on public property are referred to the Public Works Department for removal. You can submit a complaint via the Government Outreach System, by email at PublicWorks@cityoftracy.org or by calling the Public Works Department at (209)831-6300.

Private Property Graffiti:

Code Enforcement addresses graffiti located on private property that is visible to the public view.

Pursuant to Tracy Municipal Code Section 3.48.080, private property owners are required, at their expense, to remove or paint over graffiti, which is visible to public view within ten (10) calendar days after receipt of City notification.

Should the property owner fail to comply with this requirement, City employees, or private contractors employed by the City, will enter upon the affected private property to abate the nuisance by removal or painting over the graffiti. This city-initiated abatement will activate proceedings to place an assessment on the property, with costs recoverable in accordance with the provisions of the Tracy Municipal Code.

All persons objecting to, or interest in, said matter are provided the right to appeal to the City Manager pursuant to section 1.12.020 of the Tracy Municipal Code within forty-eight (48) hours from receipt of the City’s notice. At the conclusion of the ten (10) day noticing period, the City may proceed with abatement of the graffiti inscribed on the property. The decision of the City Manager is appealable under section 1.12.020 of the Tracy Municipal Code.

To report graffiti located on private property, you may submit a request to Code Enforcement via Government Outreach, through email at main-Code.Enforcement@cityoftracy.org or by calling the Code Enforcement Hotline at (209)831-6410.
