I have lived here my whole life. I love it. It gives you your small town feel, yet it is close enough to bigger cities if you are looking for something to do. The only thing I wish that will change would be more things to do around in Menasha so there would be less travel to the other cities. Wouldn't it be cool if people from other cities purposely came here for restaurants and shops? Many people just pass through Menasha and I think we need to make it worth the stop. This is a great city and we need to prove to this area that we are the up and coming city that they need to see!

Menasha utilites is what makes me not like this town. They send false disconnection notices to you and your landlord causing un needed chaos. You can't be over $195 on bill. And bill has to constantly be at $0 to not recieved a fake disconnection. It causes stress for everyone all around. And thats the main reason my family and I are relocating by May 1, 2019. Menasha utilites company and their harrassment has mad living in Menasha WI A NIGHT MARE ALL AROUND.
I grew up in Menasha, Wisconsin and enjoyed living there during throughout grade school, middle school, and high school. It is a very family-friendly community and the city offers many community activities.
