The Town of Mammoth has a new vice Mayor.
At a special meeting of the Mammoth Town council, held Friday, Aug. 23, at 2 p.m., Mayor Alvaro Barcelo removed Frances Wickham as Vice Mayor and as Commissioner of Planning and Zoning and assigned those roles to Gina Medina.
Wickham will remain on the council but without a commissioner assignment. Mayor Barcelo cited that there had been complaints made against Wickham and presented three letters with complaints. The letters were from Mammoth Librarian Letha Miller, Planning & Zoning Chairwoman Debora Foster and Planning & Zoning Commission Member Diane Theobald. Council Member Joe Brewer made a comment that the people who had signed the complaints were related to Town Manager Patsy Large.
Mayor Barcelo also appointed Pete Gallego as a Commissioner over Public Works along with Council Member Erik Romero.
Wickham was allowed to speak and let the Public Works Director, Police Chief, each Council Member, the Mayor and Town Manager know what she felt.
