A Golden couple can’t smoke in the townhouse they own after a judge ruled last week that their condominium association can prohibit smoking in their four-unit building.
‘This is my home, and I worked for it,’ Colleen Sauve said Wednesday. ‘I can’t relax and have a cigarette in my own home. If I do, I’ll get fined.’
Sauve and her husband, Rodger, who are both smokers, filed suit in March after the Heritage Hills #1 Condominium Owners Association amended its bylaws to ban smoking. A judge recently ruled against them.
The association was responding to complaints from the Sauves’ next-door neighbor, Penny Boyd, about smoke odor seeping into her unit.
