A Lee’s Summit mom said Friday her homeowners association is threatening her with jail all because her children’s backyard swing set was painted purple—more than two years ago.
Marla Stout says the homeowners association for the vast Raintree Lake subdivision in Lee’s Summit has complained to her that the purple swing set is not in harmony with other colors in the neighborhood. She’s been told if the treehouse/playset isn’t removed she or her husband could be fined or even jailed. The Stouts and the homeowners association have an Aug. 21 date with a judge over the dispute.
“In order for us to ever go to jail obviously we would have to be found to be wrong and we have to refuse to pay any fine,” Stout told Fox & Friends Friday morning.
