Mammoth – The Public Works Department is looking forward to positive changes in 2014. Work is in progress on the new Reverse Osmosis water treatment unit. This project will be constructed next to Well # 4, on San Manuel Drive.
The Town has been awarded a HISP Grant from the Department of Transportation. This will allow us to replace all street signs and most of our regulatory signs. The Town of Mammoth has been tentatively approved for a $250,000 grant to aid in flood control issues. The proposed project will be in the area of Sunset and Hetzel Avenues.
We anticipate upgrading the softball field by replacing the soil in the infield and enlarging the concession stand. These projects will be done in a joint effort with the Softball Association. The scoreboard will be operational this year, with the courtesy of Parks and Recreation Committee Member, Mr. Rodriguez. The Public Works Department is currently installing concrete pads under the bleachers.
We continue with curbing and sidewalks in the New Mammoth subdivision, with plans for continuing through town. We have built a secured impound yard and two kennels for the Police Department’s Canine Program.
