What's Up in Stallion Springs?
May 25, 2019
It's raining, it's poring and even the elk are trying to keep a bit dry. Deer and elk visiting our yards has been limited during the heavy rains we have been getting. Their trips to the lower elevations for water or some of that tall grass for lunch are not quite needed as the rain has created puddles for water and tall grass further up the slopes.
Police Chief Gary Crowell filed a report of statistics for April 2019. The Department had three arrests, issued three citations, had 55 reports, 70 calls for service, did 28 want and warrant checks, completed 56 officer initiated investigations, 10 field interviews, and did four medical assists. There were 22 vacation house checks and 20 school bus stop checks. Additionally, the Department assisted other law enforcement agencies seven times.

In an effort to prevent wildfires in the community the CSD is actively involved in notifying residents in the lower and more densely populated areas of Stallion Springs to either mow their lot or have the District mow their lot.

In addition the CSD will be assisting the Fire Department in contacting property owners in the upper portion of Stallion by the end of June so that everyone has defensible space in place.
