Discussion of a new parade policy turned sour Tuesday, March 1, at a regularly scheduled city council meeting. At the crux of the matter is whether city councilwoman JoAnn Conner will continue Golden Bear Events’ annual Fourth of July parade, which is a fundraiser for American Legion Post 795 in South Lake Tahoe.
