What's Up in Stallion Springs?
April 2, 2022
Congratulations to Dan and Christine Desmond at Papa's House restaurant in Stallion Springs: on Sunday, March 20, they sold their 50,000th pizza. It was sold to Stallion Springs residents Aruna and Kevin Ryder.
Papa's House was established in November 2018 after renovating the original Papa's Pizza location. They still offer the same family-friendly atmosphere and a new variety of delicious food options. They are not affiliated with the previous owners of Papa's Pizza & Grill.
Papa's House is a family-owned restaurant specializing in pizza, burgers, "sammies," salads and pasta. Their pastrami, burgers, meatballs, dough and sauces are made from scratch. They offer gluten free dough options on their small and medium pizzas. They also offer veggie patty substitutions on all of their burgers.
The food is great and the staff does an excellent job creating a friendly, excellent experience.
The Board of Directors approved a letter of intent to allow the Cesar Chavez and Environmental Corps to submit a grant application to the California State Parks and Recreational Trails Program on behalf of the Stallion Springs Community Services District. The grant would provide Stallion Trails with three years of fully-funded manpower, maps and signage throughout.
The purpose of the grant is to rehabilitate and establish a complete trail loop within the community. The SSCSD maintains that these trails will remain open to the public for the purpose of non-motorized recreation except in situations involving safety or maintenance.
Chief Gary Crowell filed a report of statistics for February. The Department issued 11 citations, had 109 reports, 110 calls for service, completed 29 officer, initiated investigations, 37 field interviews and two medical assists. There were six vacation house checks and the department assisted other law enforcement agencies nine times.
If you have a life-threatening emergency, call 911 and specify to the dispatcher that you live in Stallion Springs. The Stallion Springs Police Department is dispatched through the Kern County Sheriff's Office.
For non-life-threatening issues, please call (661) 861-3110. You may contact us by email or using the contact information provided on the CSD website, http://www.stallionspringscsd.com. If you wish to make an appointment to speak with an officer, contact the CSD at (661) 822-3268. Appointments may be canceled at any time due to limited police staffing.
Cleanup day has been rescheduled for April 9 due to a snow storm on the original date and potential snow storm on the second date. We can all hope for no snow on this new date.
The board approved a new pool cover and reel at a cost not to exceed $15,000. It was determined that a thermal pool cover would be best. It would keep out the leaves and dirt requiring less maintenance and keep the pool warmer overnight requiring less heating.
