The Olongapo City Government has intensified its campaign against vandals who paint graffiti in different areas around the city.

“First, vandalism brings down the prices of real estate. Second we are expecting more foreign visitors and this may give them the negative impression about the city,” stressed Mayor James ‘’Bong’’ Gordon, Jr. during the flag raising ceremony of government officials and employees on Monday, July 27, 2009 at the Rizal Triangle Multi-Purpose Center.

Mayor Gordon tasked City Administrator Ferdie Magrata and the City Council to come up with an ordinance with more teeth against vandalism. Likewise, he ordered city officials and employees to strictly monitor and locate places with graffiti.

“Kapag yung may mga graffiti ay private properties, pagsabihan yung may-ari na alamin kung sino yung naglagay ng graffiti at pinturahan agad iyon. Kung sa government naman katulad ng sa eskwela, dapat alamin kung estudyante yung naglagay,’’ the Mayor added.

Mayor Gordon alerted the peacekeeping force of Olongapo, particularly the Philippine National Police (PNP) and barangays telling them to conduct patrols around the city.

“Kailangan ay mahuli natin yung mga naglalagay ng graffiti kung gusto nating dumami pa ang investors dito sa Olongapo. Dapat alisin natin yang mga yan dahil minus factor yan sa interes nila at dapat ma-enganyo natin sila na mag-tayo ng business dito,” said Mayor Gordon.

“Kailangan i-report kaagad para mahuli yang mga yan at hindi na umabuso. Pwede rin akong itext sa 0917 896 1947 para maaksyunan kaagad,” Mayor Gordon added. ‘’May pabuyang limang-libong piso (P5,000.00) sa mga magre-report ng mga vandals kapag nahuli at makasuhan ang mga ito.
