Martha Mulheron wrote in saying she's noticed a lot of graffiti on the old Lowe's store on Oddie Boulevard that's now closed.   She wants to know if anything can be done about it.
Martha I put in a call to Adam Mayberry at Sparks City Hall and good news to report.

The graffiti has been painted over at the old Lowe's building.  Not sure if it had to do with us putting in a call or not but the important thing the graffiti is gone and the vacant building looks much better.
Just to give you an idea the city of Sparks has spent $80,000 in the past year on graffiti abatement.  So its an ongoing effort and an expensive one, but they do their best to stay on top of it.
  By the way that building is still owned by Lowes and it is currently up for sale.

There is a lot more graffiti around town. Really sad. The old Lincoln Mercury building is covered with it and nothing is being done.
