This is the season that just won't quit! Below are resources to get the latest up-to-date information on weather, road closures, and updates from the Town of Mammoth Lakes, Mono County, Mammoth Mountain, and public transportation. We recommend bookmarking these resources for quick access and following on social media for the latest updates.
Resources for Mammoth Lakes Residents & Businesses
Snow Load Damage Assessment Form
The Town of Mammoth Lakes (TOML) and the Mono County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is collating a list of residential property/business owners or renters who have a critical need to clear their roofs from excessive snow and/or to gain access and clear their propane tank as a primary heating source. The Town will prioritize the requests based on critical life safety needs and will contact the individual with further information if resources become available. If you need assistance, please complete and submit the form online.
The collected data will be used to estimate total damages countywide and determine if enough damage occurred to qualify the region for disaster assistance, such as low interest disaster loans from the Small Business Administration for those who are uninsured or underinsured. Completing the form does not guarantee the region or the property owner will be eligible to receive disaster assistance.
Mono County OEM is hoping to collect information from local businesses and residents on damages and other unmet needs no later than Saturday, April 15, 2023.
In addition, TOML has provided information regarding building damage resulting from heavy snow and potential contractors that can assist with snow removal. Find that information here.
