THE SUPERVISOR

Waterford is a safe, close-knit, multi-generational community with a rich industrial heritage. It is a place with diverse recreational opportunities, from walking along a canalway trail to swimming in the town pool.
Waterford’s emergency services, churches, fraternal organizations, and youth groups rely on the tradition of volunteer service that is typical for our small community. Waterford values its pedestrian-oriented downtown, the ambiance created by its nineteenth-century architecture, and the waterways which influenced the community’s development.
