Sean and Lisa Flynn built a fence around their Mokena home to make sure their 7-year-old son Brock doesn’t run off.
The autistic child has a tendency to keep running once he gets started, according to a CBS Chicago report.
But a 25-foot section of the fence goes over a conservation easement, and a homeowners’ covenant forbids building permanent structures on it, according to the report. A neighbor objected to the fence and the Oaks of Mokena Homeowners Association contacted them about it.
Since then, details about fence exchanges have been disputed on both sides. According to CBS, 82 Mokena residents would have to agree to let the Flynns keep the section of fence up on the easement.
Should the family be allowed to keep the fence or not? Tell us in the comments.
