Tagging is a persistent problem in San Antonio and District 1 Councilman Diego Bernal talked about how he’s trying to fight it.
“We take buildings that have been tagged significantly and we offer building owner an opportunity for a free mural,” he said.
Bernal said that their technique is pretty simple.
“We’ve got artists that we have in waiting and we get the artist and the building owner together," he said. "They come up with a concept and then we pay for the paint and scaffolding and those sorts of things.”
