Blue no more: Spray painted message vanishes from woman's lawn

Rose Lutz says her lawn is no longer blue, after a message scrawled by a city worker in spray paint earlier this week disappeared, almost as mysteriously as it appeared.

North Kildonan woman says she's glad dust up with city is over

Rose Lutz says her lawn is no longer blue, after a message scrawled by a city worker in spray paint earlier this week disappeared, almost as mysteriously as it appeared. 

The North Kildonan homeowner asked the city to look at her damaged lawn after she suspected a leaking water line might have been the culprit.

A crew came out but left a message scrawled in the yard that read: No leak. H20 Makes Grass Grow.

Lutz received an apology and the city said it would remove the paint. 

North Kildonan City Councillor Jeff Browaty also got involved, condemning the act and vowing crews would be out to fix it.

Lutz said told CBC Reporter Lindsay Tsuji Friday she did not receive a call saying they would be there, but she figures workers came by between 7 and 9 a.m. and the paint has vanished. 

She's just happy the incident is behind her.
