Graffiti Ordinance Working For Many Greenville Businesses

It's been two months since the Greenville City Council adopted an anti-graffiti ordinance. Now city officials and business owners are seeing the difference.

The ordinance which received mixed reviews states, property owners and occupants are responsible for removing graffiti from their stores. At an antique store on Dickenson Avenue business owner, Nikki Thompson, says she did disagree with the ordinance at first, but notices a big change in surrounding businesses since its implementation.

Thompson says she's seen more foot traffic in the area and more people willing to stop and shop instead of what she says, fear, walking to their car.
