Brokenstraw Township Reviews

3 reviews
The local businesses here are great. Sometimes when you can't find an item at one of the big box stores the local businesses will have it. Plus most of the local businesses in my area I grew up knowing the people who run the store or they know my family and I love that.
Review Brokenstraw Township
The employment here in my area is okay but in need of a boost. There are quite a bit of unemployment in the area but it's not bad.
the safety in the area is okay. We don't usually have bad crimes like murders or shootings but there are a lot of drug abuse crimes in the area so safety isn't the best.
