The City of Canyon Lake hosted its first-ever “Pizza with the Police” at PZA in the Canyon Lake Towne Center on Monday, October 25, 2021. The event was a great success, with many residents in attendance despite the gloomy weather.
Members of RSO Lake Elsinore, including our captain, Captain Andrew Elia, our lieutenant, Lt. James Rayls, two sergeants, an investigator, and one of our deputies, Deputy Dyer, came to discuss public safety in Canyon Lake. Also present were City Manager Chris Mann, Management Analyst Tyler Ferrari, Councilman Larry Greene, myself, and Fire Chief Jeff LaTendresse.
One of the primary topics of conversation was traffic and safety issues on Railroad Canyon Road. This event gave Canyon Lakers and the deputies alike the opportunity to meet each other and share ideas and insight.
The City of Canyon Lake was pleasantly surprised and very grateful to learn that Canyon Lake residents Dave and Jennifer Nahay called into PZA to pay for the pizza, and Canyon Lake residents Johnny and Veronica Juarez also contributed pizza and churro desserts. What a kind gesture!
The RSO members all expressed to me that they enjoy working for the citizens of Canyon Lake and really appreciate the friendliness and support they continue to receive from our community. The City of Canyon Lake is hoping to do these meet and greets with our deputies on a fairly regular basis, and at different times, to accommodate community members and their schedules. A big thank you to Joe and Shannon Luna, the owners of PZA, for having us all and for the delicious lunch.
Mayor Kasey Castillo
