We’ve been here for 3 years and have never had any crime around our area of Olive street. The Hartford Police do an outstanding job of keeping our town safe. We have a great park that is walking or biking distance from any part of town. RJs has the best fried chicken around. The best part is our taxes are low, less than $600 for the year. I love watching the Amtrak trains speed by. The city staff is always ready to help and offer a lot of free services. Yes we are close to the Mississippi and in danger of flooding, but it has never happened and never will due to one of the nations largest refineries being in the area. As far as the refinery goes once or twice a month There is a fresh asphalt smell in the air that does not last long. I probably should not talk so nice about the town as our little secret will get out. Come on over and have lunch at RJs place or have a picnic in the park.
Crime is little to none. Cops are always around.
I would live elsewhere due to being by a refinery.
