The Golden Oaks homeowners Association has dropped an August 31 deadline for Brock Flynn's parents Sean and Lisa to remove a fence they installed to keep the 7-year-old boy from wandering away from their home. Whether or not the fence will be able to stay permanently is still in doubt, but Brock's need for it is certain:
Kaitlyn Evoy, the Flynns’ state-appointed personal support representative, is an extra set of eyes for the Flynns.
“They need this fence,” she said. “A fence is a physical reminder for these children to stop.”
Association officials, however, say they did not know anything about the child’s special needs when they sent the Flynns a letter giving them an end-of-month deadline to take down the fence section that violates the conservation easement.
“We would never discriminate against anybody,” Schmidt said. “We’re all parents; we all watch out for all kids.”
Peter and Jenna Kulilowski have gotten permission to build a fence to protect their 5-year-old son Logan, despite originally facing similar obstacles.
