    I've absolutely loved living here my entire life. I want my children to grow up here. The people are friendly, and the school systems are amazing! Simply the best little town to live in.

    The services are good here, in regards to police, fire, and EMS. The county services such as power and gas are great as well, really helpful and prompt. I'm not familiar with the local governing authorities.

    Of coarse every area is going to have a few problems here and there. The crime rate has definitely dropped in the past five years. Life in Buhl is amazing.
