The Mammoth Lakes Town Council on Thursday put the town’s police department on the chopping block, proposing deep cuts as a result of the $29.5 million settlement with Mammoth Lakes Land Acquisition, Inc.
Mammoth Town Councilman Michael Raimondo, the newest voice on the embattled five-member council, didn’t let his empty chair go silent Thursday night.
Writing from Mexico, where he is vacationing, the owner of Old New York Deli & Bagel Co. in the Village ripped into the $29.5 million settlement agreement the town made with MLLA.
“This settlement and the path taken to get to the settlement were executed and implemented in a fashion that did not and will not serve the community’s best interests.
Mammoth councilmember Rick Wood said he wants to set the record straight on the events leading up to the town’s $29.5 million, 23-year settlement in the MLLA case.
