Oakleigh traders get help with graffiti removal

 

The Victorian Coalition Government has committed more than $10 million over four years under its Anti-Graffiti Plan to support councils and communities to tackle graffiti including:

  • Direct removal of graffiti in partnership with councils and state agencies through the community correctional Services’ Graffiti Removal Program
  • Providing portable graffiti removal systems to local councils to make available to local community groups, residents and businesses to help remove graffiti
  • An annual 4300,000 grants program to support councils to partner with their local communities to deliver local graffiti prevention and removal solutions
  • Supporting local graffiti management initiatives to increase the coordination and effectiveness of local activities.
     

I have delivered two graffiti removal systems to Oakleigh Traders Association Secretary, Cindy Hartnett at LJ Hooker to assist local businesses with graffiti vandalism.
 

Graffiti affects the visual appearance of our communities, influences the perceptions of public safety and is costly for communities to remove and prevent. The Victorian Coalition Government is working closely with Councils to tackle the problem with funding, grants and programs. By helping businesses to promptly remove the graffiti, we are able to deter offenders and lessen the effect.
