Think about it.
Here's an idea: "Hey, Joe, I see a section of the fence blew down. What say we put it back up? It'll take five minutes."
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has asked for approval for a six-foot-wall around the Getty House, the mayor’s official residence in Windsor Square, according to city documents.
But at least one planning official was “caught off guard” by Villaraigosa’s request for increased security around the taxpayer-owned property.
The mayor’s office filed its request on Feb. 2 for a variance to city bylaws with plans to erect a security wall around the property at 605 S. Irving Blvd.
Initially, the mayor proposed an eight-and-a-half-foot wall, which was quickly rejected by the Windsor Square Association.
Villaraigosa has scaled down his plans, but the new proposal still exceeds the permitted 42-inch height.

If your url doesn't so indicate, a heads-up of "Fox News" would probably be welcome in many quarters. Thanks.

As far as the fence history, it was probably erected before this neighbor moved in 30 years ago - but the neighbor in the past told me it was her fence. I believe it is just over the property line, on her side.
Probably putting it back up is the best bet - even though the whole fence will be falling apart in the coming years. I would have to get help due to a back problem. The fence section is quite heavy.
Someone said 15 bucks per linear foot. I paid 26 bucks per linear foot for an equivalent fence in back of my yard. I live in an expensive part of the country, which affects everything.
