At the regular meeting of the Mammoth Town Council held on Thursday, June 19, Andrew Taplin of the Resolution Copper Company gave the Town of Mammoth a donation of $2,000. Taplin also gave an update on the progress of the mining operation in Superior. He said as many as 3,000 workers could be employed with contractors during construction. Taplin thanked the council and community for their support.

In other actions on the agenda, Bud Paine’s request was approved to relocate a modular building. Annie Martinez requested that some speed bumps be placed on First and Third streets coming off of Highway 77. There are many kids are in the area playing and people are not obeying the speed limits. Her request was approved. Librarian Letha Miller gave an update on the Librarian Training Conference in Flagstaff. A request by the Lions Club to have the fees waived for the swimming pool during the July 4 celebration was approved. It was also requested that something be done about the drainage on Kino Street as the parking lot at the Lions Club gets flooded. An intergovernmental agreement between Pinal County Elections Department for the recall election is still up in the air.

Ram Narasimhan gave an update on grant funding and the progress of the water system. He said that a water system will be in place by the end of this year. That is good news considering the recent problems that Mammoth had with their water.
