Council Committee Advances Graffiti Proposal
Sponsors Work to Support Neighborhoods; Reduce Crime

Indianapolis – Tonight the Indianapolis City/County Council’s Rules and Public Policy Committee advanced a bi-partisan proposal to reduce and remove graffiti in Indianapolis neighborhoods.

Proposal 52 will now go before the full City/County Council on July 29, 2013. The bi-partisan proposal is co-sponsored by At-Large Democrats Zach Adamson, Pam Hickmam, John Barth and Republican Jeff Miller. “This proposal is a great example of bi-partisian team work,” said Adamson “and shows what can be done when we work together.”

Council Vice President John Barth said “this proposal is aimed squarely at giving neighborhoods an important tool to improve the quality of life in Indianapolis. I’m hopeful the full Council will pass Proposal 52. We need to make our neighborhoods safer and more inviting.”
