At the request of the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES), the Town Council will be approving a new emergency declaration for the February set of storms at its meeting on March 1, 2017. The Mammoth Lakes Town Council had previously declared a state of emergency on February 1, 2017 for the snow and related damage that occurred as a result of storms in January. The emergency declaration allows the Town to procure resources that may be needed to assist with damage and also to collect reimbursement for costs that are incurred this winter as a result of dealing with the significant snowfall and rain that has been received.
The Town will be documenting damage for the next several months as it is discovered as the snow melts. If the public notices damage to public right of ways or facilities, please notify the Town’s Engineering Department at (760) 965-3650. Additionally, the Town is working to collect information about damage to private property. If your property experienced physical damage or your business suffered substantial economic losses, please contact the Town directly at (760) 965-3632. Please be prepared to leave a short, concise message. Your call will be returned in a timely manner.
If you have questions about the emergency declaration, please contact Town Manager Dan Holler, (760) 965-3601.
