Bridgeport, California 93517 (Mono County) 2.5 rating By Anonymous ( Jan 28, 2020) I am a year-round resident of Bridgeport, California. I grew up in Bridgeport, CA. I lived in Redding, California for 4 years and Reno, Nevada for 4 years prior to moving back to Bridgeport around 6 years ago. I have a full time job as the Director of Water Resources for the lo ...Read More cal Tribe. I also have a 4 year old daughter that will be starting school next year. You can say I am a Bridgeport “insider”.
This town is without a doubt the hardest place to live and raise a family that I have every experienced.
There is absolutely no night life. There are a total of 7 restaurants in the entire town and only 1 of the 7 stay open for the winter months (closed October – May). This 1 restaurant is actually about 7 miles out of town.
There is only 1 market to purchase food and it rarely is open. When it is open the shelves are not filled and items like produce are rarely fresh and items like milk are double the price of a normal market.
There are no activities for a middle aged person to enjoy.
Gas is in this town is famous for its high prices. LA Times did a report on our high gas prices in the early 2000’s. The only Two gas stations are owned by the same family (Simpsons) and they have a monopoly on fuel in the area.
For children, there are only 5 other children in the entire town within the age group of my daughter so it is extremely hard to socialize a young child. We are forced to drive a 2 hour round trip once a week to take our daughter to a dance class (in Minden, NV)
The winter months are brutal. We are at around 6,000 ft. elevation. Last winter it dropped down to -25 Fahrenheit and this year it has gotten down to -15 Fahrenheit. These low temperatures make winter months depressing with nowhere indoors to go and nothing to do. (All businesses closed)
The town of Bridgeport and the entirety of Mono County is a harbor and sanctuary for illegal immigrants. There are 3 trailer parks in this small town with 25 trailer homes consisting of mostly illegal immigrants. Mono County sent out a letter to all residents that they will not be enforcing federal laws and illegal immigrants do not need to worry about deportation for being in this country illegally. Work for young people is hard to find because the majority of low paying jobs are secured by our population f illegal immigrants.
As a community we pay one of the highest (per month) fees for water and sewer in the country. We pay around $170.00 per household, per month for water and sewer. In the past 10 years our monthly fees have gone from $130.00 to $170.00 because we were told by Bridgeport Public Utility Distric we would need to help pay for an arsenic treatment plant to take out unsafe levels of arsenic in our drinking water. (There has been an EPA MCL violation for arsenic in our drinking water since 2009) The California State Water Board keeps assuring the community that the arsenic treatment plant is 100% grant funded. So we have been paying this extra fee, why? BPUD if researched online states it is a private business but represents itself as a public district. The former Utilities Manager at BPUD was arrested for fraud a few years ago and there is little to no oversite of what goes on there.

The positive side of things: Summer is breathtakingly beautiful. It’s great to be able to go 10 minutes in any direction and be at the foothills of 15,000 ft. mountain peaks. The downfall to this is we are flooded with rude city folks all summer that treat the area like their own party spot.
With all that said, if I didn’t grow up here, and have my entire family still in the area I would live somewhere else and use this area for a vacation spot. The current organization of this Read Less
