A dispute in a Unity neighborhood over an above-ground pool has gone to Westmoreland County Common Pleas Court, where a homeowners association has asked the court to order the pool removed on the grounds it violates the development's regulations.
The East High Acres Community Association Inc. of 1318 Dellview Drive filed a lawsuit on Oct. 18 against Richard and Deana Rohrer of 1151 Sullenberger Road. It claims the couple violated the association's restrictive covenants when they set up an above-ground pool this past summer in the Level Greens plan of the development, according to court documents.
The Rohrers could not be reached for comment and have not yet responded to the lawsuit.
The association, which is seeking reimbursement for attorney fees, says in its suit that the homeowners association or its representatives notified the Rohrers that their pool was built in violation of the covenants. The Rohrers, who bought the property in 2008, allegedly continued to erect the above-ground pool and have not removed it, the suit states.
East High Acres attorney Donald J. Snyder of Latrobe notified the Rohrers on Sept. 6 that the pool violated the restrictive covenants, which state that no above-ground pools can be installed or maintained on any lot, before or after construction. The association, which gave the Rohrers 30 days to remove the pool, said it has the authority to enforce the covenants originally imposed by Adam Eidemiller Inc., the developer of the property.
The case was assigned to Judge Anthony Marsili.
