Mammoth businesses welcome visitors, so should the Town

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

I’m writing in reference to the letter titled “Mammoth’s not the friendliest place to stop.” 

I have been a resident of Mammoth for 50 years and a business owner for 47 years. In those years I have seen a lot of ups and downs, goods and bads. But through it all, I feel all our businesses welcome and appreciate tourists and visitors. Certainly we need them as they help keep us thriving. 

I do my best to obey and respect our laws and regulations but we can’t expect our visitors to obey them if they aren’t posted.  So come on Town Council, Public Works and Police Department: let’s get some signs at the Mammoth Memorial Park, or wherever they are needed, “No overnight camping (sleeping).” DON’T treat our visitors that way! 

I hope that the gentleman will reconsider and stop and have a delicious dinner with the La Casita, then fill his vehicle up with gas. I’m sure these businesses will serve him with a smile and not run him out of town.
