Mountville is a clean, safe, and quiet town. I have lived here my whole life and never have had an issue with how it looked or how it was cared for. The borough is always keeping after community lawn and tree services and everything you need is close by. A few improvements could be made though in my opinion. There is a small graveyard behind the oil station that has been in ruins for many years. The graves go back as far as the early 1800s and they are in poor condition. I don't understand why no one has tended to it or at least repaired the broken grave stones. Another improvement could be the manners of the trash men. They can be rude and careless with peoples trash bins. Throwing them in the yards or leaving them on the streets. They have broken our trashcans in the past and no one has done anything about it. That should not even be allowed. I can't think of anything else that would be an issue as Mountville is a friendly and prosperous place to live.

If you like small town feel with access to big city things, Mountville is the place for you. This town still has it's own parades, events and is very family oriented yet has convenient access to larger cities such as Lancaster and York. Hempfield and Penn Manor School Districts are rated some of the highest in Lancaster County. Mountville has a mix of townhouses, apartments, single family homes, and condos. It consists of many small town eateries as well as well known franchises. This town is equipped with it's own community pool, several churches, and small town business owners.
Most people I know have jobs, and they get decent wages. However, I cant seem to find a job that pays above minimum wage, yet I work way harder than all my fellow associates.
