Mehlville is a very standard suburb for living but it's a very above average area for work. There are many companies (mainly medical) surrounding the area. Mehlville is also surrounded by other counties that have even more job opportunities with each county only being around 15-20 minutes away. There are many shopping centers and malls in the area each with their own monetary demographic. The schools in Mehlville's territory are all very well maintained and up to date on supplies. There is also a very good trade highschool in partnership with Mehlville's highschools that give an opportunity to kids who are interested in blue-collar work.
