The City of Statesville issued the following statement in response to the injunction filed against Gander RV for violating the City’s ordinance on displaying the flag: 

In June, 2018, Gander RV (formerly known as Camping World) filed an application with the Statesville Planning Department to display a 40x25-foot flag on its property.  The permit was approved, but when the flag was raised two months later, it was determined the company was flying a 40x80-foot flag, which is prohibited by City ordinance.  

After several attempts to have Gander RV replace the flag with the permitted size, the City notified Gander in October, 2018, that the $50-per-day fine would be initiated until the flag was replaced. 

On Tuesday, May 7, 2019, Statesville City Attorney Leah Messick filed an injunction against Holiday Kamper Co. (owner of Gander RV in Statesville) for violating the City’s regulations on displaying flags.  The complaint asks the Court to order Gander RV to comply with the ordinance. 

Gander RV has 30 days to respond to the complaint.
