The Ottawa mayor and city councillors were cleaning up graffiti Tuesday, as the city launched a new graffiti management strategy.

Local businesses, police, bylaw and Ottawa's surface operation branch are working together to eradicate unwanted graffiti in the city.

A pilot graffiti project in Orleans had an 87 per cent success rate.

A free Graffiti Symposium is scheduled for March 29 at Confederation High School.
