LAS VEGAS (AP) - Federal officials say a Las Vegas homeowners association will pay $65,000 to a family after refusing to allow them to park an ambulance in the driveway.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced the settlement in the disability discrimination complaint on Wednesday.

Officials say the family had purchased the ambulance because their disabled son needed to be taken to medical appointments while laying down. But authorities say the Harbor Cove Homeowners Association banned the family from parking the vehicle in the driveway, saying community rules prohibited commercial vehicles.

HUD says HOAs must grant reasonable accommodations to people with disabilities.

The HOA and management company have agreed to pay the family and revise their policy.

Officials from the management company didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Wednesday morning.
