Anyone who tags buildings with graffiti in the city limits will now be subject to outlined fines and penalties.
Lancaster City Council unanimously passed final reading of the city’s first-ever graffiti ordinance Tuesday. Councilwoman Tamara Green was absent.

Police Chief Hugh White, who helped draft the policy, said the graffiti problem has been getting worse in the city.
