Nice place to live ..good school and neighborhoods..but they don't fix there roads! Bartlett ave by the school is all pot holes..and stays that way...in the winter the roads are poorly plowed and uncontrolled intersections are not safe..but everything Eles is good!
I absolutely love living here! It is almost the perks of a small town right next to a big city. I know our family is safe and love that the little town is booming with industry!
