                                           Graffiti Removal
                             Consent to Enter and Release of Liability
    I, the undersigned owner/manager/or person in control of real property(ies) at the address indicated below, hereby
  consent to entry upon said property by the Graffiti Abatement Program’s contract personnel and equipment, as is
  necessary to remove graffiti from my property(ies) by sandblasting, painting, chemical or high pressure water removal.
    I understand that all labor, supplies and services rendered in painting or cleaning graffiti from my prop-
  erty(ies) will be done without charge to me. I understand that a normal amount of water or electricity may be
  used to remove graffiti from the property and such water or electricity will be at the expense of the property
  owner/tenant. I understand that the cleaned or treated area will only include that section of the property on which
  there is graffiti and that the paint may not match precisely, but every effort will be made to match colors to the
  existing surface.
    I further understand that all painting and cleaning will be carried out five (5) days a week, Monday thru Friday,
  between the hours of 8a.m. and 6p.m., but that a specific day and time cannot be guaranteed as properties are
  handled on a first-come-first-serve basis.
     I request and authorize the County of Alameda representative to enter and use said equipment with full knowledge
  of the above.
     I further understand that all graffiti removal on my property is in furtherance of Alameda County’s Graffiti
  Removal Program and required under Section 6.64.030 of the Neighborhood Preservation Ordinance. In con-
  sideration of these benefits being bestowed upon me, I hereby release the County of Alameda, its officers, agents
  and employees of and from any and all claims, demands, causes of action or obligations whatsoever arising out of
