Harris Township Reviews

Summer is pretty mild, we've only had a few big storms in the area every few years. Fall and Spring aren't anything to take note of. Potholes are TERRIBLE, they seem to get "fixed" every other summer but the all the road conditions leave something to be desired. We get a lot of snowfall and frequently have icy/slick roads, but responses to snow conditions are inconsistent and infrequent. For the kind of weather we get, this is unacceptable--you need to know that the roads will be clear, instead of wondering if they're going to plow them today or if they'll wait until tomorrow when it might have stopped snowing. Salting/sanding of roads seems to be outside-the-box thinking the city is incapable of unless there is very obvious and definite need for it. Also, unless you're on the main roads, it gets even worse. God forbid you live or work down one of the side streets, because you may as well just stay home until the weather clears the roads for you.

People are typically friendly and helpful, and are not openly disapproving of minorities, but there is almost no diversity. Typical small-town atmosphere, I think; most people are religious and you have your obviously religiously driven individuals or families just as you do have a few smaller groups of racial or sexual minorities. For the most part, everyone is respected, but you don't see a lot of open diversity so maybe the reason is that people just aren't very up-front about their religion or sexuality because they don't want to rock the boat.
There's very little business. No large name shopping stores except for the typical (Wal-Mart, Target, fast food chains, etc.) and a small range of locally-owned businesses for the hometown feel, but nothing really to write home about.
