Volunteers Making A Difference In Manukau

Are you frustrated with the amount of graffiti in your neighbourhood? Feel like doing something about it? How about joining in with Keep Manukau Beautiful’s volunteer paint outs and adopt-a-spot programme?

Manukau residents are invited to participate in Paint Out Graffiti days and Adopt-A-Spot programmes to help address the graffiti problem in the city.

Mayor Sir Barry Curtis, says “While Manukau City Council manages contracts for the removal of graffiti from Council owned property and supports the Keep Manukau Beautiful programme, research indicates that to solve the graffiti problem, it needs to be removed quickly from all surfaces and that the use of volunteers is important.

“Council has recently developed a graffiti management strategy. The strategy aims to impact positively on the image of our city – promoting civic pride and responsibility, increase investment values for property owners and encourage residents to become more involved in communal activities” he stated.

“Initiatives like paint out days and adopt-a-spot programmes should be supported by the local community. We all have a responsibility to contribute to our community and make a stand for zero tolerance of graffiti.”

Residents can contact KMB Co-ordinator, Tea Ropati on 262 8992 to find out more, or phone 262 5104 to register as a volunteer.
