Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

I am sorry to hear that you have this concern.

Have you ever heard from the city about this property all these years?

Did they ever say you could or could not keep the fence there?

I am looking at the survey which shows the fence on city property. Trying to find title where I remember said something about. but never heard of the city.
