Maroondah Illegal Graffiti Policy

By September 4, 2006No Comments

Council adopted Maroondah City Council’s Illegal Graffiti Policy at the public meeting this evening. The policy which is available for viewing at Council’s customer service centres aims to reduce the prevalence of illegal through a multifaceted and strategic approach.

The Policy incorporates seven core elements:

  • Removal;
  • Enforcement;
  • Prevention;
  • Diversion;
  • Education;
  • Monitoring, and,
  • Strategic initiatives.

In moving that the policy be adopted I stated the following recommendations:

  1. That Council endorses the Maroondah Illegal Graffiti Policy;
  2. And, that Council investigate the usage of special charge schemes to expedite the removal of graffiti where supported by the community.

The provision of the second recommendation will provide scope to hasten the removal of graffiti if consent is given for a special charge scheme. I proposed this addition upon requests from local traders who wished to contemplate such options.

Council carried the motion, which contained both recommendations, unanimously.

The review, strengthening and adoption of Maroondah’s Illegal Graffiti Policy honours a commitment I made to the people of Loughnan’s Hill in regard to anti-graffiti measures.

Instances of graffiti can be reported to Maroondah City Council by contacting the customer service centre on 1300 88 22 33.

Please let me know if you have any feedback in regard to the removal of graffiti within Maroondah.
