There is not enough in town. Le Sueur needs a retail store, more food options, and more entertainment. It is a nice, quiet town with low crime - which is great for families. The housing market is also much more affordable compared to nearby cities. Employment options are limited. The schools are lacking resources and have a poor reputation among many in town.
Although the safety of people here is great, the amount of crime found in this area is extreme. There are so many drug busts and stealing issues in this area. The police are never seen around town, but when they are it is usually because of an emergency. The police tend to be one sided, and only treat people with the popular names with respect, and let them get away with anything.
