DISCUSSION

1. Discussed recent graffiti attacks in the area, including a major attack (20Dec18) on a parked train (overnight) at Thirroul Station and huge graffiti mural on the Thirroul station toilets (east side) caused by the same vandals, on the same night, see attached pic.  The train was made unserviceable.  The council removed the graffiti on the toilet block.

2. Meeting discussed the wonderful Commissioned Street Art in Wollongong CBD and along Memorial Drive.

3. Graffiti Free Thirroul ‘Scope Document’ Revision 2, updated. See attached

4. ‘Expired’ advertising signs have been left on power line poles in the area. 2018 Eat Street ads, etc.  We need to take a photo and report it to Endeavour Energy or WCC to arrange removal.

5. Tony reported some success with removing felt tipped marker pen graffiti with Mineral Turps (wearing turps resistant gloves).  May also be effective on spray paint tags on asphalt and concrete with a wire brush (always do this safely).
