NAPLES - The attorney for the homeowners associations is responding to a mother who is upset with security changes at her subdivision.
"Now our kids can't get even get through the pedestrian gates unless they have a pass code or passes," said Keri Menard.
The mother says it is unsafe for her daughter to wait for a car to exit the community so she can dart through the gate.
The problem started when the pedestrian gates were reportedly switched so that a card was required to get out of the complex.
In addition, the management only issue two cards per household, which Menard claims is not enough for her family of four.
"If you have four or five people living in a unit you can have four or five different access cards," said attorney Todd Allen, who represents Tuscany Cove in Naples.
But Menard told In Your Corner on Tuesday that in the past she was not informed and even told more cards would be $100 a piece.
"She can't get out either... A dog's chasing her, a person, if there's just any reason she needs to leave the community she can't get out," said Menard.
For his part, Allen told us: "I can't speak to whether that a safety issue or not but it's something I'll look into further."
Allen says they management has not had a complaint since the security rules were put in place.
