CLOSED SESSION: Council to appoint interim town manager on Tuesday, Sept. 24

The Mammoth Lakes Town Council is expected to name an interim town manager on Tuesday, during another closed session meeting.

As is its custom in advance of closed session meetings, the council made no announcement as to whom the interim town manager would be, nor how many candidates there were, nor what qualifications the candidate was to have.

However, sources within the town said the council last week interviewed four candidates, all of them men.

One of the candidates dropped out of the procedure, according to the sources, leaving the council a choice among three candidates.

The first—and arguably, the only—primary duty of the interim town manager is find a permanent town manager, although it was not known what kind of of a timeline the council expects.

The council began its search for an interim almost as soon as the ink was dry on the resignation of Town Manager Marianna Marysheva-Martinez, who resigned Sept. 2, for reasons that were not announced by either Marysheva-Martinez or the town.
