I love the atmosphere because it's quiet and the nature is very beautiful. I would live here for a long period of time but because of jobs it would be hard to live here if you don't have a degree in college. I hope in the future there is more high paying jobs.
When in need for the police they are good when it's an emergency but when it's not they take their time. They're always out making sure traffic is handled and no one is breaking the rules.
