Team cleans up graffiti

July 12, 2007

Albany - - If you're tired of seeing graffiti in your neighborhood, you can help clean it up.  Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful, Albany Police, and City Commissioner Jon Howard are organizing a graffiti abatement initiative.

They'll head to 12 different locations this weekend. This is one of them. They plan to remove graffiti and they welcome anyone who wants to join in.

"In certain neighborhoods we've seen numerous pockets of graffiti going up on private property on street signs and on the roadway. In order to enhance or keep an area clean we certainly have to find a mechanism to get rid of this graffiti as soon as they put it up," says Commissioner Jon Howard.

Organizers want to make the clean-up an ongoing project. Howard stresses the city will continue enforcing the ordinance that fines property owners who fail to clean up graffiti after they've been cited.

If you'd like to help out with the clean up Saturday, just head to the old Isabella School at 300 Cason Street in Albany.

The event starts at 9 am and will last about 4 hours.
