I received a notice from my apartment complex office that states that there is an ordinance that restricts what can be on my apartment patio to the following 4 items patio furniture, live plants, bikes, and grills. The statement also states that any other items would be in violation of this ordinance and subject the owner to a fine of $500. Is this true, and if so can you direct me to a source for the actual ordinance. This seems rather restrictive. I currently have a small plastic basketball goal (made for toddlers) on my patio, along with a red wagon with small outdoor toys in it.

I am not familiar with any ordinance regulating what items can be placed on a patio or balcony. Ordinance #94-08-04 references the use of barbeque grills and the signage required to be posted on balconies and patios. Apartment owners can make rules to regulate their properties.
