Review of Rocky Mount, North Carolina

City of Rocky Mount
Star Rating - 7/24/2006
The City of Rocky Mount has a stronghold on its utilities customers and is slowly but surely causing the decline of a growing population. Utility rates are at an all time high and there are obvious spikes in the coldest days of winter and the hottest days of summer. The City Council Members are rubbing elbows with the The City and together are trying to destroy the very foundation this town was built on - the blue collar workers and the mom and pop businesses that held it together all these years. I was born and raised here and were it not for my elderly parents who still live here, I would have long been gone. About the best I can do now is move OUTSIDE the City of Rocky Mount limits and make sure the City of Rocky Mount doesn't get any of my hard-earned money. To anyone considering moving here, DON'T - this town has NOTHING to offer you but high taxes and utility rates, low wages, a corrupted City Council (white and blacks alike) and the shame and embarrassment of living in a town with no conscience or morals.
