Certainly, all of us agree that messages and defacement of public property of any kind are unacceptable in Washington Grove.
Graffiti in the form of a racial epithet was recently discovered spray painted on Washington Grove lane. It has since been obliterated. However this incident especially must be acknowledged as a potential hate crime. The Town considers such incidents as an offense to all of us, and requests they be reported to the to Town officials (301-926-2256) AND to the County police for the record and for investigation (use the non-emergency Police number 301-279-8000, or 911 in an emergency).
