The City of Orillia is looking at other ways to combat graffiti.
One idea is to have the City partner with Crime Stoppers.
Council was discussing a recommendation on graffiti by-law enforcement.
An amendment to a motion was made by Councillor Sarah Valiquette-Thompson at Monday's (12th) meeting.
Valiquette-Thonpson says one business in town has been hit with graffiti on a number of times.
She says the owner has invested thousands of dollars in clean up and surveillance cameras and it continues to happen.
Valiquette-Thompson says her suggestion is to offer a cash reward in order to get more tips.
She hopes those tips can lead to an arrest in these cases.
Valiquette-Thompson says the City can add to the Crime Stoppers reward as well as get the message out on their platforms.
She says there about a half a dozen known tags in the city and hopes the incentive will lead to an increase in tips.
Valiquette-Thompson says a report is due back to Council Committee and the Police Services Board will also provide feedback on this initiative.
