Steubenville City leaders vented their frustration at Tuesday’s City Council meeting with the person or persons responsible for painting graffiti on properties throughout town, including their own Belleview Park restroom.

A resident spotted the graffiti on the restroom wall last week and reported it to City Manager Jim Mavromatis.

Mayor Jerry Barilla said he’s hoping new lights installed next to the Belleview playgrounds will help them figure out who’s behind the problem, while Police Chief Bill McCafferty has asked council to consider funding a new surveillance system that could monitor high-risk areas.

Mavromatis said they’re trying to pinpoint when the vandalism happened in hopes it will make it easier for police to pinpoint the perpetrators.
