    the complex next to mine is red tagged, it’s 10 units or so. I know of three other places that were red tagged and I’m sure there’s more. There’s a zero vacancy rate for rentals, so not sure where people are going to go.

    Trouble, the emergency is that the roof line of their apartment building split in half from the snow load and their apartments are not habitable and are in danger of collapse. The people live and work in Mammoth and there are no rentals available. The building is behind Robertos. Check it out.

    The Red Cross stepped up right away with a Shelter Team. Mono County Social Services made this all happen very quickly and should be commended for how fast they responded to take care of our fellow citizens.

    The building was built in the 1970s when there was not much in the way of building standards.

    I don’t want to critique Red Cross, but knowing Mammoth, they declared a emergency so they can get another tax break. I’m working up there and I’m not seeing a state of emergency.

      One of the most ignorant and coldest statements I’ve ever read here.
