Property taxes are higher than surrounding towns. The money doesnt appear to be being spent on maintaining streets, or buildings.

There are many abandoned properties, but those that do end up being occupied are usually wrecked by addicts and make our neighborhoods look like skid row.

The city sewer has had an add on fee for years, supposedly to pay for a new processing facility. There is no facility.

Our water is undrinkable unless we filter it, even yellow several times this year. There are no apparent plans for improving the treatment.

We pay higher utilities than surrounding towns.

I have lived her almost my entire life. There are things for teenagers to do as well as 3 parks kids can play at. It’s a nice community.
The police know about the meth houses and dont do anything.

When we first moved in, I had people jumping my back fence. The cops told me it wasnt possible, told me I was seeing things and did nothing. We still have the problem, and now a broken fence.
