Graffiti on City assets
City of Mandurah is responsible for removing graffiti from infrastructure it manages or owns. This can include footpaths, street signs, public toilets and buildings such as libraries and community halls.
Graffiti that is located on a boundary structure and can be accessed from local government property will also be removed.
Graffiti on other government and utility service assets
The City will directly report graffiti on any agency-owned assets to the relevant owner for removal as it is the responsibility of the owner. Some agencies may include Western Power, Main Roads WA and Transperth.
Preventing graffiti tips

- Practice Neighbourhood Watch – work with neighbours to increase vigilance in the area.
- Rapid Removal – report and remove graffiti as soon as possible to reduce the likelihood of re-occurrence.
