Bethel Township Reviews
Review Bethel Township
There are some empty, foreclosed homes in the area that are unkempt. A significant portion of residents take care of their property. Problem areas tend more often to be house rentals. The closest apartment rental by my residence is affordable, privately owned, and appears to be well kept. However, there is a high turnover rate, but it is usually residents who are disruptive or engage in questionable behavior. There is an apartment complex further away that is known to house drug dealers, undocumented, migrant workers, and lower income residents. It has been cleaned up somewhat but continues to struggle. It sits directly by an adult/strip club. There is an adjacent community that is kind of isolated that is known for drug abuse, sales, and meth labs. Another adjacent community is diverse in income levels and property care, with few residents having a very high income.The community as a whole in general has appeared to decline over a decade.
There is one restaurant/dinner club that has recently re-opened that at this point servers quality meals and alcohol (The Tavernette). Other than that there is a sports bar outside of the immediate community. Nearby bars are neighborhood dives. There is an adult strip club on the outskirts of the community. This establishment is not a favored business for a majority of residents, although they have allegedly refurbished the establishment, have obtained an alcohol license, and now have some restrictions on skin exposure. Apparently some of the younger residents use this establishment as a night club.
The immediate community that I reside in has little opportunity for employment, although there are some restaurants that hire servers. Because of the large surrounding farming community there is a large culture of migrant workers, which appears to be the most common form of employment. However, several major highways, state routes, and larger adjacent cities are very accessible from this area. Most forms of employment are outside of the immediate community.
