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.
