The schools here are good, but the city of Southmayd is a bit difficult. Streets are not maintained, water is expensive, and there are really no city services to speak of except for the police (who seem to be here for the sole purpose of setting speed traps). The mayor is incompetent, but no one in the town wants the job so he stays in office.

It's a quaint neighborhood. Just don't let your grass grow too high, the tickets from Code Enforcement are astronomical.
