The owner or occupant of any building, structure or object that has been marked by graffiti shall cause said graffiti to be removed from the building, structure or object within five business days of notification by representatives of the Village of Tarrytown. For the purpose of this section, the term "graffiti" shall have the same meaning as that found in § 145.60 of the Penal Law of the State of New York.
In cases where the owner or the occupant shall neglect or refuse to remove the graffiti within five business days of official advisement, the village shall have the right to carry out the removal and charge the costs thereof to the owner of the premises. Such costs shall constitute a lien or charge on said premises until paid or otherwise satisfied or discharged and shall be added to the village tax roll and collected in the same manner as delinquent taxes.
Penalties shall be provided in Chapter 1, General Provisions, Article II, and each twenty-four-hour period after the expiration of the warning period that each violation shall be permitted to exist shall constitute a separate offense punishable in the same manner.
