Building battle brewing in Sugar Land

September 20, 2010
Are city inspectors turning a blind eye to the needs of a man who is elderly and infirm? Or is the man’s son attempting an end run around the rules?
     Neal Perez says he just wants to accommodate his disabled dad. But the city won’t grant the permit.
     “This is where father takes a shower. This is father’s shower room, right here,” says Perez, pointing to a chair in the middle of the breakfast nook.
     Here, 84-year old Nildo Perez has been getting sponge baths, surrounded by towels.
     The elder Perez has been disabled since suffering a massive aneurysm in 2004.
