MIDLAND - A Midland woman is not happy after her fence was vandalized with graffiti but she said what happened after was even worse. The city mailed her a letter saying it had to be cleaned up in 10 days.
"It's frustrating! With all the crime that's going on and you're going to concentrate on what the graffiti on my house looks like," Rachel Conejo, a victim of home vandalism, said.
Conejo said her fence was vandalized about a month ago, but on Tuesday, she got a letter from the city that said the graffiti needed to be cleaned up.
"I mean I'm not happy it got vandalized. I paid $5,000 for this fence. I don't want it vandalized but I'm not responsible for what mindless individuals do to other property," Conejo said.
The city said they'll clean up the mess all they need is the homeowners consent. But Rachel claimed it's just not that easy.
Rachel also received another letter in the mail. It explained that the City of Midland or a third party contractor will take care of the graffiti. But the letter goes on to say if something goes wrong while trying to fix someone's property, the city isn't liable.
