Fairfield Council spent $700,000 on tackling graffiti in the last two years.
In 2006, the council began a program to coat amenity buildings at sporting fields and parks with a graffiti-resistant coating.
They are inspected fortnightly and any graffiti found is removed.
In 2007, council-owned bus shelters were added to the program.
It allocated $55,000 in 2008 for removing graffiti from private property visible from public spaces.
