Mammoth Council strive to keep information from public

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Consider the situation. Never has there been an city council like Mammoth so disciplined in secrecy, so precisely in lockstep in keeping information from the people at large and from their representatives in the city. Never has a city council been so unabashed in reaching like Caesar for still more wealth and power. Never has a hand and glove fitted together so comfortably to manipulate free political debate, sow contempt for the idea of the city government itself, and trivialize the peoples’ need to know.”  

ONE OF MANY EXAMPLES:

“Other factors could include the HURF funds which were inappropriately borrowed and according to Mammoth’s June 30, 2011 financial statement audit the balance of those funds had grown to $646,795. It could be more but no financial statement audit has been completed since then. On June 30, 2014, the town will be three years without a financial statement audit. Per Arizona Revised Statute 9-481: Audits shall be made at least once for every two fiscal years for all incorporated towns.”
