Community Action Day is coming up in the city of Yakima on Saturday, July 23. City officials say it's a time to engage, educate, and empower Yakima residents to identify, report and eradicate vandalism throughout their neighborhoods. The event will be held at Yakima's Garfield Elementary School at 612 North 6th Avenue from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

You'll learn about ways to reduce vandalism while meeting city officials

A press release says during the event "law enforcement, city officials, local schools, businesses and community organizations will begin to foster community relationships by clarifying the roles of law enforcement and city officials" to help stop neighborhood vandalism. “The City of Yakima aims to reduce vandalism cases by making neighborhood improvements to deter future criminal activity through graffiti abatement work,” says Communications & Public Affairs Director Randy Beehler.
