Baltimore Township Reviews
Review Baltimore Township
There is only one cop on duty at a time so the visibility of the police is low, however if you call the police they respond quickly. Occasionally a car will be broken into but New London is overall a very safe town with little crime. There are however a lot of abandoned buildings in New London and kids and teens have been known to go into them.
The businesses in Southeast Iowa are good for being a smaller community. The Mall is up to date on trends and have family-owned stores here receive great business and the people of this community are very supportive of each other. Specifically the Casey's General Stores are in great condition and are by far the best customer service of any other store in Southeast Iowa. I prefer them to any other. I prefer mom-and-pop businesses over any other because it supports family and that is very important to me. Although I do believe we need more clothing and recreational stores around here I am satisfied that the stores meet my day-to-day needs.
The employment in my area could be better. The people with degrees can find jobs easily but the people who are only high school graduates have a tough time finding work that is not through a temporary employer.
