Tyler Against Graffiti (TAG) was organized to clean up and discourage graffiti "taggers" from vandalizing residental and commercial property in the City of Tyler. The TAG Team's goal is to clean up or paint over graffiti within 72 hours of receiving a report (weather permitting) at no charge to the owner or manager of the property.
The City of Tyler Ordinance on Code Enforcement, Ch 18, sect. 18-3, designates graffiti as a nuisance. This means that it is a crime to paint graffiti on public or private property in the City Limits. The same ordinance requires property owners are supposed to paint over or remove graffiti within 15 days or face possible ticketing and fines.
