Mono County Civic Center -- Mammoth Lakes
The County currently provides services in the Town of Mammoth Lakes within leased office space in the Sierra Center Mall and the Minaret Mall. Within these two locations, County services include Public Health, Behavioral Health, Environmental Health, Social Services, District Attorney, Probation, Community Development, Public Works, County Counsel, Economic Development, as well as offices for the County Administration and the Board of Supervisors.
Beginning in 2016, the County began analyzing long-term options for locating these services. Among the options were continued leases, purchasing existing commercial space, or building an office building at the Civic Center complex in Mammoth. After 2 years of public meetings and options analysis, on June 5th, 2018 the Board directed staff to proceed with the construction of the Civic Center office building.
The resulting design-build contract with Roebbelen Contracting of El Dorado Hills was entered on August 7th, 2018, with a total project budget of $20.5 million. The project was initiated immediately, construction began in April of 2019 and the project is now nearing completion. The County expects to begin providing services out of the new Civic Center beginning June 1, 2020.
The project is being financed by bonds that were released/sold in December 2018. The debt service on the bonds will be approximately $1.26m per year, which will be largely offset by the elimination of current lease costs, which are approximately $1.2m per year.
The County looks forward to the financial stability and asset investment that this new facility will provide. In addition, the co-location of County offices into one building will increase the efficiency and convenience of County operations, and provide for enhanced security and confidentiality for County clients and staff.
