Quite little town. A very poor town due to steel mill closing. Used to have the top rating for snow removal. Now not so good. When school is cancelled, the roads go untouched, yet people still have to go to work. Water rates are triple what they used to be.

When I married my wife, I moved to Mingo Junction OH. It might be a small town, but it's a friendly and safe environment.
Mingo Junction is a place where all sorts of different people live. The neighborhood I live in is usually quiet and is full of wealthy, white elders. I don't like being surrounded by this due to coming from a poor family but it is a good neighborhood to be in.
