Best Place to Live in Port St. Lucie, Florida

Getting worse around here. Still lots of foreclosures and bum rentals around town. Cost of living is not as low as you think here, or in Florida in general. Just got the water bill: calculated out to about $720/yr for a couple who conserve water. The cities and towns are all about MONEY. They'll squeeze as much out of you as they can. It's awful how they fine people here and put liens on property just because they have some weeds in the yard or an exposed trash barrel in the driveway. They'll attach a home for thousands which people can't afford, so that the city can cash in when the old folks finally die and the property is sold. I don't know how this abuse was allowed to get so out of hand.
