PASCO - KEPR is following up on a neighborhood plagued with damaged fences blamed on students walking home from school.

KEPR first discovered the problem in West Pasco last fall and the city has finally made a plan to fix the fences. It will cost homeowners about $400 a piece for the replacement fence. Pasco says the new ones will be much stronger.

“I mean it's been an ongoing problem, we've fixed our fence 3-4 times and each one of the boards cost ten bucks,” said homeowner Bevan Briggs. “So it’s not going to go away, so yeah it’s time to fix it.”

The final approval will come in the next few weeks -- but most neighbors say they're for it.
