A few weeks after Highland Park residents complained about the amount of time it takes to clean out tagging and graffiti, the City Council today approved a proposal by Councilman Ed Reyes that would provide more money for graffiti clean up in his district through the end of the summer. The $18,000 in additional funds, which were transferred from other city financial accounts, do not seem like much but Reyes spokeswoman Monica Valencia said it will be enough to pay for three more clean-up crews to work four days a week for the next four weeks. The additional crews will be deployed throughout Council District 1, which stretches from Highland Park and Lincoln Heights to Angeleno Heights and Westlake.
