For the 2nd straight year Assemblyman Ramos has secured $40,000 - this time as an Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant - to issue to the Urban League of Long Island to continue the successful anti-graffiti initiative within the 6th Assembly District. Last year, 18 commercial corridors were rid of graffiti, with over 700 properties becoming graffiti-free. Suffolk Avenue, 5th Avenue, Islip Avenue and Carleton Avenue are among the graffiti-free zones. In addition, over 200 residential properties were cleaned through this initiative.
If you encounter graffiti, please call the Graffiti Removal Hotline at 631-316-8565 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org One of the most important aspects of this campaign is community involvement and it's crucial that if you see graffiti, you call the hotline or send an email immediately. The faster you contact us about graffiti, the faster we can clean it up. Fast responses maintenance is the BEST way to dramatically reduce recidivism rates.
You can also contact Assemblyman Ramos' office at 631-435-3214 or the Urban League of Long Island at 631-232-2482.
