    Amelia Reviews

    I like Amelia because it's small town USA. There are a couple things I feel need to change however. First thing is public transportation because nothing is within walking distance. The second thing is pretty big. We have five different jurisdictional police. That's just too much. There are so many police that even though you aren't doing anything wrong, having so many police makes you feel like you are doing something wrong. There is no crime rate hardly so I can't figure out why we have so many if there isn't a significant crime problem.
    Review Amelia
    Great place to raise your kids! Family-friendly atmosphere all around. Great improvement to agriculture and infrastructure In the last five years.
    Amelia is a great little village that is a very close knit community. We have great activities that are sponsored by our village. I'm pleased to say I know all of our police and mayor personally. While I would like to see a decrease in property taxes, I'm happy to say if used appropriately, I'm happy to pay them.
