[efoods]ANAHEIM — Rosa Bobbio said she feels like nobody is on her side – a victim of graffiti taggers on one side and city officials on the other.
Bobbio is facing a $466 fine from city code enforcement for failing to remove graffiti etched on the windows of her upholstery shop on the 100 block of South East Street.
Fighting the taggers is a frustrating and near-constant battle, she said. She’s already spending hundreds of dollars a year painting over graffiti on the walls, and she can’t afford to replace windows – an estimated $1,600 cost.
She said she would hope the city would be more involved in helping her solve the graffiti problem instead of compounding her worries by issuing a fine.
