By John Hernandez

Vice Mayor Wickham asked the council to look into creating an economic development board/committee. She talked about the Tribal Casino that will be developed off Highway 77 between Central Arizona College and Dudleyville.

She also argued more people are moving to Mammoth and businesses are interested in the area, proposing the committee be made up of Mammoth citizens.

The Town will be posting the criteria for those that are interested. They would like to have a committee in place within 30 days.

The Senior Citizens will be allowed to sponsor a monthly Farmers Market/Swap Meet at the Miner’s Memorial on Highway 77. Lynn Zeiler has been talking with vendors from Tucson and they have shown an interest in participating.

The Mammoth Community Swap Meet is scheduled to be held on Friday, Mar. 1 and Saturday, Mar. 2 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Miner’s Memorial. A vendors spot will cost $5 for each day of registration.

Francis Wickham also announced at the meeting that people can get their income taxes done for free at the Mammoth Town Hall on Feb. 27 and on Mar. 13 and 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

At the beginning of the meeting, a question was asked about the property the Town was purchasing at 337 Highway 77. The purchase has been completed and the Town will continue renting out the buildings. The businesses currently located at the address are Michoacana’s and Mi Pueblito Tortilleria.

Public Works Director David Garcia as well as Mammoth Fire Department representative Rick Sanchez spoke to the Council about a relocation site for the helicopter emergency landing zone, which was later approved. It will now be at the soccer fields behind the Fresenius Medical Center off Highway 77.

The new site will allow for more helicopters to land safely if needed. The old site was at the cemetery.
