Maybe someone else can cite the exact wording, but I believe local
government no longer has jurisdiction over dishes up to 38" in diameter.
The FCC has preempted any local regulation both in city and homeowner
association situations so that people can install DSS (direct broadcast
TV) dishes.

If they are somehow disallowing your 24" S-band dish but allowing other
people's 38" Ku-band dishes then that's just plain corrupt.
