The graffiti clean-up is concentrated in the central city, where the number of reported graffiti is on the rise. June had about 600 reports compared to May, which had 400 reports.
Moorhouse Ave, Armagh St and Montreal St are the hot spots. The three most reported tags are 'Detor', 'Gomz', and 'Plotz', with over 700 of the reports on contract building sites and utility boxes.
Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board chairperson Alexandra Davids said the many empty walls around the central city were inviting for graffiti artists.
She believed commissioning more murals around the city would result in less graffiti, as it created less space for taggers.
