What's Up in Stallion Springs?

New board members have been elected by the Property Owners Association. President returning, Debbie Rodriguez; Vice President, Noemi Tkacz; Secretary, Lori Rodgers; Treasurer, Donnie Williams; and Members at large Maralee Hill and Shirley Harbeson.

Even though the future of our organization is still up in the air, at least we have these dedicated residents to help us make big decisions and keep it currently afloat.

It may be a better idea to start dissolving the POA and put our fundraising and community improvement efforts into the nonprofit foundation that is already formed and connected to the CSD because they have insurance.

There is currently a lawsuit against the POA for an accident that happened with the trailer that was used for Christmas Caroling. The next court date is Aug. 31. President Rodriguez will fill out the forms online to submit our answer to the court but she may need some help. We can't afford an attorney at all and I can't locate one willing to represent us pro-bono. But we will still be going to court to show we are involved, concerned and try to share our side.

This community has thrived on close-knit organizations like this and we need to continue them. Part of why Stallion is so special is because of these small town events, friendships and memories made, and the way our community comes together in a time of need.
