Review of Meriden, Connecticut

the armpit of Connecticut
Star Rating - 2/22/2009
Lets see, $360/month property tax on a $199K/1,568 sq ft home, $57/month water&sewer for two people, $101/month homeowners insurance, $550 to fill the heating oil tank, 6% sales tax, $286 for motor vehicle taxes on an 8 year old vehicle valued at $8125, $225 for January utilities (electric), $23/month trash removal, $130/month for phone/TV/internet service. Now I'll quote directly from today's newspaper, "Its crazy here, says Edgar Santiago, I used to pay $250 a month for a studio apartment, now they want $700. I can't affort it". Oh, and the police blotter for today, we have disorderly conduct, second-degree breach of peace, evading responsibility, reckless driving, two counts interfering with an officer, third-degree assault, third-degree strangulation, risk of injury to a child, and lots more. Anyone want to swap places?
