My wife and I gave 4 kids, and I am recently out of the Navy. First Energy has offered me a high paying job at their plant in Shippingport. We don't have a lot of time to research the areas around the plant, so I was hoping for some "local" advice.
** What towns would you suggest? We have to be within a 45 minute drive of the plant, but we are looking for a quite, middleclass area. With home prices in the low $200's (if that is eve a possibility!)
** What is the crime like in that area? We currently live in a very small town where crime is non-existant.
**Approx property taxes - we currently pay about 3K on a 220K home.
** How are the schools in that area? Any ones that are better than others??

I know this is a lot to ask, but any and all advice, suggestions and assistance will be greatly appreciated. We have a short window to decide if I am going to take the job or not.

Beaver is the ideal place to live. Great school district and housing.
