City of Whyalla crews have cleaned up graffiti on a welcome sign to the steel city.
The Council was aware of a spate of graffiti on signs coming into Whyalla.
The HMAS Whyalla Ship tours sign was one of those signs hit with Council crews pushing this job up the list to make sure it was cleaned up before the Easter break.
CEO Chris Cowley says Council was reluctant to draw attention to these graffiti attacks as any publicity was often seen as a badge of honour for the offenders.
Mr Cowley says the public can help prevent these attacks by reporting any acts of graffiti or vandalism to Crime Stoppers.
