Storey County Commissioner Candidate Nicole Barde files another report on the Virginia City Tourism Commissions VCTC meeting.
There was an angry mob of C Street Merchants who were there en masse to protest the cancellation of the 48th annual Ferrari Hill Climb.
I’ll file a detailed report on the Fate of the Hill Climb later so for now, enjoy Ms. Barde’s recant of the meeting.
A GROUP OF ABOUT 30 MERCHANTS ATTENDED TO PROTEST THE CANCELLATION OF THE FERRARI HILL CLIMB…..AS WITH MOST PROTESTS EMOTIONS RAN HIGH
THE APPROVED BUDGET IS IN BALANCE BUT SPECIAL EVENTS STILL COST MORE THAN THEY BRING IN TO THE VCTC …..BUT OVERALL THEY BRING PEOPLE INTO TOWN FOR INCREASED TOURISM BENEFITTING THE MERCHANTS
THE 4TH OF JULY FUNDRAISING IS FALLING SHORT BY $10,000….THE VCTC NEEDS HELP …..SO IF YOU CAN CALL KATIE DEMUTH WITH IDEAS SHE’LL LOVE YOU FOREVER!
