Rome Township Reviews

1 review
I have lived in Athens Ohio for the better part of my life. Athens used to be a great place to live and raise your family. I have raised my oldest here and put them through college, with no concerns then. I am now in my second marriage with 3 young teenage children to think about. My wife and I have watched hard core drugs take over this area, crime has sky rocked and the peaceful life that this area used to be is no more. We have decided to sell out and move to give our kids a chance at success. Meth and Herion is every where, and for every Meth lab bust 5 more starts up. Love this town and may come back once the children are grown. If you have kids beware that Drugs and Crime is currently out of control through out all of southern ohio.
