Stallion Springs CERT

The Stallion Springs CERT team held its basic training classes over the past four weeks. The course prepared residents on what to do during an emergency in the community. The classes included courses in Disaster Preparedness, Fire Safety, Search and Rescue, Medical Operations, Disaster Phychology, Terrorism, and Communications. A total of 23.5 hours was involved. CERT would like to welcome the new members to the team.

Stallion Springs Board of Directors

At the Feb. 20 Board meeting Leslie Wellman was appointed as Vice President of the Board replacing Vince McLaughlin who had previously resigned from the Board.

The Board approved borrowing $2 million over 10 years for the Road Contract and Solid Waste site construction. Approximately $1.6 will go to roads. A map of the proposed road repairs and type of repairs is available at the CSD. The additional money will go towards relocation and replacement of the Solid Waste facility.

The Board also approved $165,000 for the replacement of two police vehicles and several public works vehicles that have come to the end of useful life. The old vehicles were declared surplus and will be sold off to help cover the cost of the new vehicles.

The Board meets on the third Tuesday of every month. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, March 20, at 6 p.m. in the CSD Board Room.
