Bass Lake Mayor Forrest Bunkard today issued another mayoral mandate, this time ordering a seasonal layoff of Joe Sycophant, the town’s snow-removal manager.
“This is a cost-cutting measure,” Bunkard said “It hasn’t snowed more than an inch since late-2016 — why should our tax dollars fund workers to do nothing? I say, slash-and-burn — like a Guns ’n Roses/Talking Heads tribute band.”
Sycophant said he “absolutely” agrees with the mandate.
“Whatever the mayor says is perfect,” Sycophant said. “He’s doing a fine job.”
