What's Up in Stallion Springs?

Teresa Sasnett was elected president of the Board of Directors at the February Board meeting. Sasnett is a 14-year resident of Stallion. She feels one of the best parts of being a resident of Stallion is the friendship felt from the moment you drive in. People wave, smile and the atmosphere is welcoming.

"I always strive to keep up with everything going on in the community, it is clear to me that the Board has the best interest of the community at heart, I wish to serve my neighbors by being part of this Board," Sasnett said.

The Board approved a 1.5 percent cost of living increase for the staff, subject to the General Manager determining that the Fiscal Year 2022 budget can sustain the increase.
