Who do I need to contact about an abandoned home that is full of garbage and attracting animals?
I am trying to get info on Hickman County for a vacation. I have looked all over the www.hickman county website and there is NO email address available or contact form. Two of the links for visiting went to bad/error sites. Can you please help me?
Thank you Kori at the market and Mandy at the museum, what wonderful folks you are, Tom and I thoroughly enjoyed our short time in Centerville due to your warm and friendly hospitality, what a truly
lovely community you have, Jeff from Dorset England
Thank you for the website tour. I'm in Florida and thinking about semiretiring up your way in Lyles. The more I read, the more I like. I've worked hard in my life as a massage therapist and
lymphedema with breast cancer survivors. I love to garden and hike. My horse is being retired to a farm up in Lynnville and I want to be near him. Love antiques and thrift shopping - too much! Trying
to par down so I can come up. I'll visit in November.
This website is great! The design and layout are easy to read and user-friendly!
VERY nice job on the website! Especially like the section for new residents about utilities. My only concern:Scott Powers photo doesn't do him justice! (*J*)
