PROVIDENCE, RI – Mayor Jorge Elorza Thursday joined the city’s Graffiti Task Force for a clean-up on Highland Avenue in Providence to highlight the service and remind residents that they can report graffiti to the Mayor’s Center for City Services by dialing 421-CITY.

“With the arrival of summer I have put the Graffiti Task Force on ‘high-alert’,” said Mayor Elorza. “If you see graffiti, call my Center for City Services and let us know so we can continue our aggressive efforts to keep Providence beautiful.”

The Graffiti Task Force uses high pressure washers and paint to remove and address graffiti throughout the city. The Mayor’s Center for City Services has resolved more than 300 reports of graffiti throughout the city this year.
