Homes in Auburn Greens are to have the garage doors open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday, according to KTXL.

Not everyone in the community likes the new rules.

"I have nothing to hide. I understand somebody had people living in the garage. I don't. I am following the rules," resident Shally Ia told KTXL. "All I am asking is a reasonable way to get around this. If you want to do a monthly, bimonthly inspection of my garage, I have nothing to hide. If I have something that's being stored in there and you don't like it I'll remove it."

Violators will be fined $200 and get an administrative hearing for leaving their garage door closed.
