Graffiti by-law to stay

The graffiti removal by-law, requiring property-owners to remove graffiti or else face a possible fine, will stay. In a five to three show of hands at last Monday's Town Council committee meeting his colleagues rejected Alderman Eli Melky's motion to remove the by-law.

For his pains Ald Melky earned something of a dressing-down from CEO Rex Mooney, a rare intervention by the executive in aldermanic debate in my time of observing council meetings.

Mr Mooney objected strongly to Ald Melky's challenge that the by-law offended against the Local Government Act. As the Solicitor-General of the Northern Territory had approved the by-laws, this could not possibly be so, said Mr Mooney and Ald Melky's arguments were sending "the wrong message" to the community.
