Graffiti removal

Dear Editor:I am writing to say a big thank you to the city of Downey for the wonderful graffiti removal program they have. Last week I was putting my trash cans out for pick up at approximately 6:30 a.m.; I live on 8th Street so the trash gets picked up from the alley behind our house. I was absolutely shocked to see graffiti on my wall and several of my neighbors' walls and garages. I immediately called the graffiti hotline and a very nice lady answered and assured me they would be out soon. By 10 a.m. the same lady that answered the phone and her partner had our alley looking as good as new! They did an outstanding job and I am grateful to know there is such an efficient program to eradicate graffiti so quickly. Sandy Wells Downey
