“We were constantly needing to go back there and paint it yellow,” City streets and environmental services manager Glen Farrow told KTW.

Farrow said the city hired someone to create the art, noting certain locations in the city would benefit from a street art dumpster.

He hopes it will curb those who feel the world is their canvas.
