Santa Clara County Supervisor Mike Wasserman, who lives in Los Gatos, saw our post on Aug. 21 and told us through staffer Elizabeth Sanford that the responsible agency for the cleanup was the Town of Los Gatos.

Los Gatos Parks and Public Works Director Todd Capurso said the graffiti was cleaned up with gray paint the same week we posted our second reminder of the vandalism.

Thank you for cleaning it up, Town of Los Gatos.

We visited the wall on Monday, Oct. 1 and noticed it's still clean, but found graffiti in other parts of the trail. Stay tuned for those trouble spots in the coming weeks.

PROBLEM: Graffiti was spray-painted along various parts of the trail just after passing the Roberts Road Bridge.

DAYS ON WATCH: 38

DATE CLEANED UP: Aug. 22.

For now, anyway. I still think they need to invent some kind of paint that nothing can be written on it, sprayed on it, etc.

Im sorry but how is a darker grey attractive? I dont understand why they just dont have a artist just paint this whole wall into something great to look at instead of a bad paint job. the darker grey is going to attract more artist to spray paint because they see some one painted there befor and they want to go over it. If you have the whole wall painted by an artist, other artist will respect it and not go over it, unless its gang tags they dont care about anything but most tags are real artist so you wont really have a problem with people tags on this wall again...just an idea, thanks
