Madera Brings In Outside Firm to Fight Graffiti

Fresno, CA, USA The Madera City Council voted unanimously to hire an outside firm of anti-graffiti experts to clean up the tagging.

Three full-time graffiti abatement crews with the city usually hit the streets daily to remove the graffiti -- but it's been a losing battle.

City officials say the firm will help develop a more thorough approach to combating graffiti. That includes not only abatement -- but also prosecution, education, and community involvement.

The cost is about forty -thousand dollars ... But that's much less than what it costs city workers to clean up the graffiti.
