General Manager

General Manager, David Aranda, said, "Changes are in store for Stallion Springs in the New Year. After the holidays, be on the lookout for a letter from the CSD regarding your solid waste and how the CSD has limited options in handling it. The letter will include a detailed explanation. We will be asking for you to fill out a survey and return a response. Based on the survey, there will be a town hall meeting to make decisions regarding solid waste."

Stallion Springs Board of Directors

The Board meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m. in the CSD Board room. The next meeting is scheduled for Jan. 21.
