      disappointed with Cartersville

      Yes Cartersville has some nice spots, but a sprawling gap in economic levels which most cities do. It is how the government treats these. Cartersville is also full of history, historic districts which include some that are aging very poorly. If you live in one that the city does not support good luck with anything from water main breaks (they'll put a bandaid on it), to very poor sewage and storm water systems. They won't do a darn thing about those. And I have run into several very, very shady things about the government. City officials that hang up on you or do not return correspondence, to a vial lack of accountability when it comes to protocol and procedures to general record keeping. So very sorry I moved here.
