NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Dan Short, owner of FantomWorks in Norfolk, feels helpless.

“Frustrating is just a part of what I’m feeling,” Short told

When the city of Norfolk offered to send someone to clean graffiti off his classic car shop over the summer, it seemed like a no-brainer. But now he’s changed his mind.

“I will never allow the city to call another contractor to come here and fix any damage on my property again,” he said.
