Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 13 Hansard (21 November) . . Page.. 4044 ..

(5) The graffiti removal contract for government assets requires all areas to be inspected weekly. In high priority areas, graffiti with offensive words and messages and reported incidents by the public must be removed within 24 hours of observation or notification. In other areas graffiti is to be removed within three days. The contract requires at least 95% compliance and this is being achieved. Removal time from private assets is dependent on the time it takes to get leaseholders agreement to have the work done. The Government has two contractors in place for graffiti removal. Canberra Horticultural Maintenance is responsible for three regions: Tuggeranong, Canberra Central and Belconnen/Gungahlin. Totalcare is the other contractor responsible for Woden/Weston area.
