Rosie O'Donnell has complied with a village ordinance that required her to lower the height of the fence surrounding her properties in South Nyack, N.Y. South Nyack village attorney Keith Cornell said the comedian and Advocate columnist was issued violations recently for extending her fence with a fabric attachment beyond the height the village allows. Cornell said the case was resolved when O'Donnell took down the fabric.
Separately, a court hearing has been scheduled for November 3 on several summonses O'Donnell received for cutting down trees on the same properties without a permit. The 41-year-old O'Donnell formerly lived in the nearby village of Nyack, in a 22-room riverfront mansion called Pretty Penny that once was the home of actress Helen Hayes. O'Donnell sold that house in 2000 because of security concerns. She'd extended a brick wall along the front and side of the property, but fans repeatedly rang a doorbell on the brick wall, and on one occasion a fan scaled the wall into her yard.
