Imagine a Mammoth deep in debt and unable to collect its fair share of the Transient Occupancy Tax.
People donât actually have to imagine that much.
Itâs the reality.
But on Wednesday night, the Mammoth Lakes Town Council took action, approving a measure that would modify the townâs current TOT ordinance and maybe â maybe â put some teeth in it.
The town canât do it alone, however, so it teamed up with the Mammoth Lakes Lodging Association, which offered its volunteer assistance in helping identify scofflaws.
But that doesnât mean the town is powerless.
