The visual pollution that is caused by offenders is frustrating to us all, and although there are several successful proactive measures that can be utilised, consistently painting out or removing graffiti as quickly as possible is still a very effective method of reducing its proliferation. Staunch commitment is required from residential and commercial property owners, utility companies, police, council, and our contractors. In highly visible or problematic locations, such as the dairy in Ward St, council will go the extra mile to try to eradicate graffiti. Council contractors have, in the past, painted out graffiti on these premises on the proviso that the owners would continue its immediate removal on an ongoing basis. The persistency of the offending in this particular case can of course be demoralising for the property owners, so to aid the ongoing removal, council has delivered a pail of anti-graffiti paint to the premises. The anti-graffiti paint prevents the taggers product from adhering to the surface. These facts, although mentioned by the property owner, were unfortunately left out of the recent article. Council is working with Corrections to use probationary community service hours to clean up graffiti. In some cases, this means the perpetrators are cleaning up their own mess. Council officers have also utilised the goodwill of the Defence Force, which has volun- teered cadets. Public feedback from these initiatives has been positive. Council is also currently asking for guidance from the public, on 22 proposed projects, as part of its pre- consultation for the long term plan for 2012 -2022. One proposal is to increase funds allocated to this area from $45,000 to $75,000. This would allow for a more proactive approach and higher levels of service in regards to graffiti removal. To make a submission online, please go to www.upperhuttcity.com/consul tation. Freepost paper survey forms are also available at the Civic Centre, Central Library, and i-SITE Visitor Centre. CHRIS UPTON, chief executive officer, Upper Hutt City Council The council was offered the opportunity to respond to the Ward St dairy owners original letter to the editor, did plan to do so in the same issue as the letter but then declined the offer. -- editor. How to reduce tagging To the owners of the dairy in Ward St thank you for being responsible enough to repaint your dairy. I have a few suggestions on how you can reduce the amount of tagging that you receive.
