South Lake Tahoe business owners call for resignation of mayor

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE MAYOR PRESSURED TO RESIGN

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE MAYOR PRESSURED TO RESIGN

On this holiday weekend in South Lake Tahoe, a ban on visitors is producing backlash, and a new effort launched just two days ago to force the mayor to resign.

South Lake Tahoe’s officers are actively enforcing the ban with $1000 fines.

But on Sunday, there was pushback.

A GoFundMe campaign has raised more than $13,000 so far to move Mayor Jason Collin out of Tahoe. The message to resign is resonating with a variety of business owners who have been hurt by the ban on out-of-town visitors.

“As a business owner here, a lot of us are tourism-based,” said Dreu Murin, who owns an advertising agency in South Lake Tahoe. “And without tourists, we don’t survive.”
