PALMA city council has cleaned up more than 2,600 areas where vandals had daubed or sprayed paint.
The extensive clean-up operation began back in July, and over the last eight months the council’s Infrastructure department and the Emaya municipal company have removed vandals’ work from children’s play areas, municipal parks, walls and urban furniture.
Palma Mayor Jose Hila went to see one of the cleaning teams in action this week. He took the opportunity to appeal to the public for “civic behaviour and to act with responsibility” to keep the Mallorca capital looking at its best.
