UPDATE: We received the following note from the City of Dixon Wednesday, which offers the simplest and fastest way to report vandalism or graffiti:
"[We] have a “REPORT A CONCERN” module on the city of Dixon website that allows for electronic submittal of reporting items such as Graffiti. Feel free to share. We do want to get the information from the citizens and out to the appropriate department as quickly as possible." (View a picture of the module in the images on the right).
ORIGINAL STORY: We try to post the crime logs as often as possible on Dixon Patch (although we admittedly miss some days). While most of the police calls are minor in nature, it's easy to notice some trends that show up often.
One of those trends lately has been graffiti in town. We wanted to take a second to share how to go about reporting this kind of vandalism when you see it. Here's what the City of Dixon has to say:
"If graffiti is on private property, please contact the Code Compliance Officer at 707-678-7075 extension 133. If graffiti is on public property, please contact the Public Works department at 707-678-7050 or 707-678-7000."
Have you seen graffiti around town? How can we discourage future vandalism? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
