The city says the original fence was easy to break. It paid for the labor while the homeowners paid for materials. Church groups also volunteered to help with the labor, saving some of your tax dollars.
One neighbor tells KEPR, "It was a huge relief. The fence all along road 84 was deteriorating and we looked like a slum in the making."
Neighbors could have opted out of the repair, but most opted in. Each neighbor will probably have to pay $300-400 for the fix.
