City Says Some Fences Along Sacramento River Parkway Must Come Down

 
City Says Some Fences Along Sacramento River Parkway Must Come Down

Members of the Sacramento City Council say some of the city's neighbors are stealing property and they want it back.

Property along the Sacramento River Parkway, owned by the city of Sacramento, provides access to the Sacramento River, or at least it should.

Private property owners complained to the city that the area was also a haven for public drunkenness, vandalism and illegal parking.

The property owners said they got informal permission to build the fences. They even provided the fire department with keys to locks on the fence, but the city says they never approved the fences and they have to come down. 

Sacramento City Councilman Darrell Fong says if it's on city property, the fence is going to have to come down.

An investigation has determined there was never any formal process undertaken that would have allowed the fence to be erected.
