Report graffiti easily at the touch of a button

Residents can now help keep Fairfield City clean by reporting graffiti to Council on an app.
Residents can download VandalTrak on their mobile phone and easily and immediately report graffiti for Council to remove.
Simply take a picture of graffiti on your phone through the app, and GPS coordinates are then automatically sent to Council.
Graffiti reporters are notified through the app when Council removes the graffiti.
Council spends about $85,000 a year on removing graffiti.
Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said everyone can do their bit to help our City clean.
“We need to work together keep the City clean. It’s our city and our people are its eyes. Together we can not only remove graffiti but we can work towards discouraging it.
“I urge everyone to report graffiti when you see it.
“The quicker it’s reported the quicker it’s removed,” Mayor Carbone said.
“One of the best ways to deter and dishearten graffiti vandals is to remove their tags as quickly as possible,” Mayor Carbone said.
The app is also used by the Police to reduce graffiti crime.
The app can be downloaded via the iPhone App Store and Google Play.
