STATELINE, Nev. — Events center supporters seeking a $34.5 million pledge from Douglas County’s redevelopment area say the money is necessary if they’re to bond to build the $100 million project. About half the money for the center will come from a $5 per night surcharge on Tahoe Township lodging approved by the 2019 Legislature. “The Legislature did not provide us with an alternative funding source,” said Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority Director Carol Chaplin.
