    Breitung Charter Township Reviews

    I have traveled all around the country. Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and other big cities are on the list. But I have traveled to many places by car. The experience has introduced me to the small towns as well. When I compare my town/area to other small towns, I feel the people are genuinely nicer here to outsiders than some other places I've been. We also seem to have more unique wintertime activities than many small towns in Wisconsin. However my town is not a very cultural diverse environment. Racism is not intended by many people in my community (mostly white conservatives in this area) but when a minority group moves to town or someone has a different religion than a form of Christianity people can be very ignorant. It is hard for me to live here for that reason. I want to see equality and though people are kind, they are just so ignorant. For that reason in the future I believe my hometown will only be quick visits.

    In this area there are a lot of busts for kids getting drunk at parties, DUI's, and occasional drug busts. I haven't seen too many severely violent crimes in the area however. When there are issues where public safety needed to be notified I would count on them. We only have so many stations in the large area they are supposed to cover, so my town may be better off than some areas in the county that use the same police but are further away when it comes to response time.
