We have owned a condo in Mammoth for many years, and recently contacted the Mammoth Police Department for assistance. The police officers have been responsive. No one knows when the services of the police will be required, and I would strongly urge the Mammoth Lakes Town Council to maintain the level of service and safety net now in place.
There has been so much handwringing about our failures around here this past year that it’s been easy to overlook Mammoth’s successes.
Yet we’ve had them, and not just little ones, either.
Last month, the new running track opened south of town at the Whitmore sports complex. It is hard to overstate what a remarkable achievement that is. It took five years of work in the form of grant writing, fund drives, and political maneuvering to get it done.
