Clay Township Reviews
I actually don't know on the approximate people who were born and raised here to compare but most of the people I know moved here. We do host Foreign Exchange Students in our school and have a few people here that were born outside the U.S., but (unfortunately) we are almost totally homogenous. After having lived in Hawaii and blessed to enjoy an extremely diverse range of ethnic backgrounds, living here is kind of a letdown in that respect. You're always going to have those people that choose to be chronically unhappy, but overall, we are a happy and friendly people.
We have a fairly small population but are spread out. There are the typical upper scale subdivisions as well as country homes on acreage...large, beautiful homes on acreage and a trailer park around the lake. There are very few vacant or abandoned properties. Cost of housing and utilities are less than in a larger city but, I would say, a little more expensive on average compared with other towns in the area. There really are no "bad" neighborhoods that you would not feel safe having you or your children in. I wish I could afford to buy more property here.
Everyone I've worked with at Parks and Rec has been outstanding. The Chamber of Commerce is small and has only one paid part-time employee. The other 5-7 people there are all volunteers. There is one person at City Hall who makes you feel like an inconvenience and she's the only one I've met there. I don't know who my local or state reps are other than by name and I've conversed with the Governor only by correspondence through the City Manager of Warrensburg, MO. The person who answered the phone for the ambulance service is awesome and the EMT's that responded did a good job, especially considering the hour of day and the snow storm they were driving in.
