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.

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.

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

Bankruptcy.
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.

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.
