Volunteer Graffiti removalists wanted
The following letter has been sent to residents who live near the railway lines. If you are interested can you please let Karen know. This service is a great asset to the city. It is my understanding that this would still not include graffiti within the rail corridors.
I am writing to advise you of Council’s Volunteer Graffiti Removal Program in light of the recent increase of graffiti in your area on or surrounding near the newly completed train line upgrade.
The City of Unley Graffiti Volunteer Removal Program was launched in 2012 and is having a significant impact on reducing unwanted ‘tagging’ throughout the City. Council currently has 18 active Volunteers managing graffiti around the City of Unley.
The program’s aim is to allow volunteers to assist Council by removing easily accessible graffiti from around their local area. The impost on volunteers is as demanding as each person wishes to make it. Indeed, most volunteers report they remove graffiti whilst going about their normal daily activities and the impact on their lives is minimal.
A review of the areas covered by our volunteers and the current frequency and volume of graffiti along the electrified rail corridor indicates that additional volunteers could be extremely beneficial.
This letter is to ask for your help in nominating as a volunteer to help Council maintain Unley as a preferred destination for visitors and residents.
Council will induct and train interested volunteers on the graffiti removal process and provide all equipment and products required. The amount of time spent removing graffiti is up to each volunteer.
If you are interested in joining this worthwhile volunteer program or would like more information, please contact Council’s Volunteer Management Officer on 83725111.
