Dog Sled Adventures owner Jim Ouimet got support from most of the Mono County Board of Supervisors Tuesday to work with county staff to find a “bare bones” way to give Ouimet a better living situation.Ouimet’s dog sled business is located on county land, under a county lease, off the Casa Diablo Road east of Mammoth Lakes and the S.R. 203/U.S. 395 junction.
The supervisors agreed Tuesday to accelerate efforts to give Ouimet an inexpensive living situation, take another look at an option to pay him for county land “caretaker” responsibilities, work toward a long-term housing situation for Ouimet and his staff, and more.
There was no deadline set for the staff to report back to the supervisors regarding progress on the issues, but Supervisor Larry Johnston, who spearheaded a long discussion about the nine-year Dog Sled Adventures tenure on the land, said he believes it will be “soon.”
