KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A metro woman with FOX4 said that she is tired of playing games with her neighbor who says she was avoiding her calls from June.
"Woman up and take care of your responsibilities," said Latrese Burnett. "Your sewer line is broken. You were mentioned, but you will refuse to handle your business."
Connie Hines sells her property to tenants, but the city records show that she is repeatedly mentioned for broken sewage pipes and the mess they leave behind.
"At any time there are people in that house, all their sewage comes on my property," Burnett said. "And now it's based entirely on the establishment of my home."
Burnett with FOX4 said that she has been dealing with this issue for many years but her neighbor and childhood friend are clear that she does not intend to fix her pipes.
"I can translate my house literally, demolish walls, floor coming up," she said. "I think I'm running a hostage in my own house."
FOX4 covered the situation last month and found that the city had closed the case for the individual citations issued to Hines – before the problem was resolved. Following a broadcast, a new letter was written.
"This is not going to stop my house from entering caves," Burnett said in response to the new mention.
Burnett told FOX4 that she will file a lien against Hines property on Tuesday morning. A lien gives a person the right to hold property belonging to another until that person pays a debt.
