Homemade No Parking Sign in Westover?

A tipster sent us this photo of a spray-painted no-parking sign in front of a dumpster on 11th Street N., near the intersection with N. Kennebec St., in Westover.

“What right does someone have to do this?” the outraged tipster asked. “Can I report this to the county?”

The answer is yes — county officials say the spray paint can be reported to the police as graffiti since it’s on public property.

It’s unclear who is responsible for the rogue no-parking sign — the owner of the residential complex, the waste disposal company or a random graffiti prankster — and it’s not clear if we’ll ever find out. Police say that unless the graffiti is gang-related, it’s simply noted in a report and referred to a county agency for clean-up.
