The City Council on Tuesday unanimously adopted an ordinance requiring businesses to keep spray paint under lock and key.
Aimed at reducing the city’s graffiti problem, the ordinance would also bar juveniles from possessing or purchasing spray paint unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
More than 100 local merchants received a Feb. 14 letter outlining the ordinance, and none have expressed opposition, City Administrator Gregory Korduner said.
Los Angeles and Monterey Park have similar ordinances. City Atty. David Gondek said others with ordinances include La Puente, Huntington Park and Gardena.
