The controversy over RV shows by California-based La Mesa RV in a county-owned park in Bullhead City, Nev., is continuing for the second year, according to the Mohave Valley News, Laughlin, Nev.
The San Diego-headquartered chain, with dealerships in five states, staged events at the park last year under a local court order. A spokesman said the city isn’t contesting La Mesa holding three shows at a county-owned park this fall and winter, but wants La Mesa to apply for a city-issued special events permit.
One county supervisor voted against allowing the La Mesa shows because he felt other Bullhead City dealerships are harmed economically.
La Mesa representative Beth Ritchie argued the shows pour hundreds of thousands of dollars into the local economy when attendees pay for lodging, restaurants and state and local sales taxes.
