Hispanic advisory committee town hall meeting


The Mammoth Police Community Hispanic Committee has organized a town hall meeting.

The Mammoth Lakes Police Community Hispanic Advisory Committee has finalized plans for the next Town Hall meeting scheduled for Friday, June 8 at 4:30 p.m.  The Town Hall meeting will be held at the Grand Sierra Lodge, 1111 Forest Trail.

Presentations will be made by representatives from the Mexican Consulate, the Mono County Superior Court on the CASA Program, the Department of Motor Vehicles on licensing, and a joint presentation on disciplining children by the Mammoth Unified School District and Wild-Iris.  There will also be an Open Forum where questions can be asked of representatives of these agencies along with the Police and Fire Departments of Mammoth Lakes and the Mono County Sheriff’s Department.

Interpreters will be present and it will be possible for attendees to ask questions anonymously by way of using index cards.  Food will be provided and there will be supervised child care.

The Hispanic Advisory Committee was created in late 2010 in an effort to build trust and improve communications between the Police Department and the Hispanic community of Mammoth Lakes.

    With our Hispanic population approaching 50% this is a terrific idea and yet one more example why the Town of Mammoth Lakes should be considered for the All-American cities award.

    In spite of the usual political and financial problems, Mammoth Lakes continues to get better and better each day.

    Just The facts- All-American award? Is that before or after declaring they are bankrupt?

      Get out from under the debt.
      Start the rehabilitation and continuation of the business.
      And start over with a newer and better POA.
      It’s the American Way.

    am not sure if the hispanic population is aware of all the towns financial issues. that would be a good timew to bring up points like these. if i were a citizen of mammoth, which i once was, I would like to know if the town i lived in could support civil services, like public safety, transportation, taxes, water, and all other issues that seemed to be taking mammoth into a downward spiral.

    but thats just me…..

      Don’t forget to ask about the huge public pension /benefits debt the town will have in the future. I am sure it is approaching 20 % of total revenues .

      here is a nice little article about another small town with massive debt issues

      My understanding was a great deal of information exchange from those officials and local residents who attended.

    what? no follow up report? what kind of info was exchanged?, what were some of the questions asked?. It would be a good idea to do a follow up report to let the community and others know the status of the hispanic committe.
