City and law enforcement officials will host a public meeting to address locals concerns and questions about the upcoming visit by the Mongols Motorcycle Club.
The police department, members of City Council and city staff will host the meeting Tuesday, June 19 at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 401 California Ave., to discuss the measures being taken to insure the safety of residents, businesses and tourists.
This meeting is open to all residents, merchants and anyone interested. Please share this with your neighbor to make sure they are aware of it.
If you are unable to attend, please contact the Chamber for a summary after the event.
The meeting was scheduled due to a high volume of questions and concerns regarding the Mongols national meeting scheduled June 22-24. The club’s leaders assured city officials the national gathering will be a family reunion-type event.
The motorcycle club was formed in Southern California in 1969 and is considered an outlaw motorcycle gang by law enforcement.
The Mongols said the group of about 400, including family and friends, will be arriving in Boulder City June 22. The plan is to have meetings and a private party with a band on June 23 at the Boulder Inn, and leave June 24.
The club has also bought up rooms at other hotels and motels in town for the weekend.
