La Mesa RV of Yuma, Ariz., lost the latest round in its battle with Bullhead City to operate an RV show in a county park, according to Laughlin’s Mohave Valley News.
The paper reported that the Mohave County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday (Feb. 1) to order the county parks director not to issue use permits for recreational vehicle sales events at Davis Camp County Park.
The decision by the county board will go into effect within 30 days, when it will enact a county park ordinance to define the county’s authorization in holding recreation vehicle sales events at the county park.
The controversy began when the county supervisors approved in December a temporary use permit for La Mesa to hold a show at the park for three weeks in January.
Bullhead City refused to issue a permit allowing La Mesa RV to proceed with the sale, claiming the show was in violation of city zoning laws.
Last month, a Superior Court judge granted a temporary restraining order allowing La Mesa RV to hold the RV sale at the park.
Superior Court Judge James Chavez will hold another hearing Friday to hear additional arguments for any future shows La Mesa RV wants to hold at Davis Camp.
