      DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS ANNOUNCES FREE GRAFFITI REMOVAL VOUCHER
      PROGRAM



      (Washington, DC) The DC Department of Public Works announced September 7
      its Graffiti Removal Voucher Program for District residents and business
      owners whose property has been defaced by graffiti. Beginning Monday,
      September 10, they may call the Citywide Call Center at 202.727.1000 to
      obtain a voucher to be redeemed at McCormick Paints located at 15th and
      P Streets, NW and Duron Paints located at 14th and Clifton Streets, NW.



      The paint store will match the color of the paint of the property and
      will provide property owners with paint, primer, a brush, roller, pan,
      drop cloth and graffiti scrubs free of charge.



      The voucher program is part of Mayor Adrian M. Fenty's aggressive
      graffiti abatement plan, announced in June 2007, which will allow the
      city to remove graffiti on private property more quickly and help
      property owners remove graffiti themselves.



      "Offering property owners the voucher for paint and other materials is a
      fast way to remove graffiti, which is a rising problem in our city,"
      said DPW Director William O. Howland, Jr. "The voucher program also
      will relieve some of the financial burden that causes residential and
      business property owners to delay removing the graffiti themselves. Not
      only will this program help to keep our city cleaner, it will help us
      keep it safer."



      For more information, or to receive a graffiti removal voucher, call the
      Citywide Call Center at 202.727.1000. Property owners should expect to
      receive the voucher within five days of making the request, and they
      will need to sign the voucher when they redeem it at the paint store.
