Citizens howl in special Town Council budget meeting

May 11, 2012

Everyone knows the financial footing of Mammoth is bleak, and that it’s been bleak for three years or more.

But on Tuesday night at a special Town Council meeting, citizens learned that the town is merely at the start of a hard road ahead.

“Our future is even bleaker,” said assistant town manager Marianna Marysheva-Martinez, who said the various cuts in a new budget reduction plan equals about 14 percent of the budget.

Planning Commission OKs firearms sales

May 11, 2012

The Mammoth Lakes Planning Commission on Wednesday approved firearms sales in the town’s commercial zones.

The vote was 4-1, with only Elizabeth Tenney voting no.

“I support firearms in the Industrial Zone,” she said, “but I can’t support firearms in the commercial/lodging zones.

“We decided a long time ago that this is a special place. It’s four square miles. We decided not to permit big-box stores, for example.

“This (a gun store) would change the character of our community. So based on considerable thought on this, I can’t support it in commercial zones.”

May 11, 2012

 South of Mammoth to Paradise, east to the Tri-Valley and Benton, big sprawling District 2 is a distinctly nonhomogenous district that will require its county supervisor to be something of an acrobat to be eff ective.

It has Crowley Lake, essentially a bedroom community to Mammoth.

It has Swall Meadows and Paradise just down the hill, but whose kids go to Round Valley or Bishop schools and whose residents do most of their shopping in Bishop. Swall and Paradise never saw a development project they loved, or a deer or coyote they didn’t.
