Mammoth Lakes police signs off on new sign


Maverick Signs donates an identity

The Mammoth Lakes Police Department, occupying a former retail store on Old Mammoth Road since 1986, has a new name.

The sign on the building at 568 Old Mammoth Road had a sign identifying it as the “Police Department,” but never which police department.

The oversight has stuck in the craw of Chief Dan Watson.

“I’ve never seen a police station that wasn’t properly identified by signage,” he said.

Several month ago, Dave Fultz, owner of Maverick Signs and Graphics, offered to donate a “Mammoth Lakes Police Department” sign and install it. 

Watson readily accepted and Fultz installed the new sign on Wednesday, May 1.

“I appreciate the generosity and community spirit of Dave Fultz. The new sign looks great and incorporates the script of the new town logo.”
