Is Waterford Township graffiti tower art or eyesore?

(WXYZ) - Is it art-- or an eyesore? 

Waterford Township has ordered the owner of the LA Cafe to get rid of a 30-foot concrete tower.

Darren Graunstadt stood the massive sewer pipe up outside his restaurant this summer to give artists a place to express themselves.

The cafe's owner says he's gotten just three complaints and most people love it.

But now the township says the tower is considered "construction material" and must be removed from the property by Monday.

He says he hopes to work out a compromise that will allow the graffiti tower to stay.
