Morgan County Reviews
I would live here the rest of my life! The community is great, as a whole it feels like a family. Everyone knows everyone, no matter how old you are are from a small family. Also we recently had a family in my community that has been battling cancer , once everyone found out the whole town pitched in to do whatever they could. we had a paint night to raise money to help with medical bills. It is just the atmosphere that I get from everyone that makes me love it here.
Meredosia is a small town with minimal businesses, what you see is what you get unless you want to drive 25 miles to a bigger town. Gas stations are never a problem, Casey's and Phillips 66 are our choices and I have not had a bad experience at either of them. We have two Banks that I am not familiar with because they both open and close within the hours that I am at work. We have a Dollar General that has anything that you may need unless the entire village has bought out all of the milk. We have three bar and grills that offer some amazing food; between the three you have quite a selection. The Churches in town are very popular on Sundays and everyone lives to play on the River all summer long. I am very happy with the small town life and supporting my community, Meredosia offers a hometown feeling that reminds me of my hometown. I wouldn't change it for the world.
We have to pay for fire protection over and above property taxes that are high. The city nor county wants to claim and maintain the two main roads to my residence and we have just had a very harsh winter season, the worst on record since the seventies. The two municipalities near our home struggle to play nice on the social playground all the time and citizens do not have as much comradery across certain school and neighborhood borders.
