Independence Water Tower Vandalized with “John Deere Green” Artwork

The Independence water tower got some surprise “artwork” this week.

Someone climbed the 182-foot water tower Tuesday night or Wednesday morning and wrote “Matt Loves Rebecca” in letters three feet high – pretty similar to Joe Diffie’s country song, “John Deere Green”.

Independence City Manager Al Roder says they’re investigating the vandalism.

He tells KMCH there is nothing to report beyond the fact that it is paint and the paint color is “John Deere green”.
