One of the things I love about living in Stallion Springs in the small town sense of community. This was brought home yet again while reading the latest issue of Consumer Reports magazine. Consumer Reports conducted a survey in late September. They asked 1125 people to rate annoyances on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the most annoying. Hidden fees ranked the highest at 8.9, closely followed by an 8.6 score for inability to reach a human being by telephone.
I was somewhat surprised that comparatively few people were annoyed by fast drivers. Many more found slow drivers to be an issue. I’d have to agree with that as far as it goes, but my big annoyance is drivers who are unable to maintain their lane. Driving is a skill and too many people view it as a chore — something to be gotten through rather than something at which to excel.
Which gets me off my soapbox and back to where I started. One of the things that I love is that if you call the Stallion Springs Community Services District (SSCSD) office during business hours, you almost invariably get a live answer, no waiting. As for hidden fees, we don’t have any. Charges are clearly shown on the water / refuse bills and other fees are paid through the tax bill. There isn’t any effort to hide anything.
In fact, the best way to stay on top of what’s going on with respect to running the SSCSD is to attend a Board meeting. They are held the third Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the CSD office. Stop by and check it out and get more familiar with Stallion Springs. See you there!
