Is there a vet for your sleuth's cat? Is there an urgent care in town? How many restaurants are downtown? Every region will be different in terms of what size town will provide different things. Tiny suburban towns will depend more on larger nearby cities. Tiny rural towns need to be more self-sufficient. Tiny resort or vacation areas tend to need more resources in comparison to population, because they have visitors to serve. The south will be different than the north, etc.
Johns is a veritable metropolis, at nearly in population. It is still however, thought of as a "small town" by most Americans. Now we can Google the town name for more info about just about anything: But I'm going to concentrate on police and town governance first: If you scroll down the page, I find the "Village of Westphalia, Michigan" website.
Town websites can be a treasure trove of info for the researcher. Some are amazingly full of information. And some, sadly, are not. I'll often find things that surprise me, even though I've been researching small towns for a while. And the first time you research small towns, you are likely to find a lot of things that surprise you. For instance Westphalia doesn't have a mayor, it has a president. Also, there is no police department -- for that you have to call the Clinton County Sheriff's office, which is run out of St.
Johns but is separate from the St. And when those Grand Ledge cops are closed - as mentioned at the top of the Google page -- the sheriff's department will likely be the ones answering the call. This is important to know when you are dealing with mysteries in small towns. Also, these are the sort of thing that can make for great plot turns. You call the cops, expecting to get the local cop who knows something about what's going on, and instead you get a deputy from three towns away.
Another factor is the fire and emergency response. Looking at Pewamo, and their village website, I see a little more cultural information on their website. This is common - often the tinier the town, the more the website is a work of love for some member of the community. However we see NO mention of the police or fire departments. Not even references to the township or county. With a "street view" picture of the location and everything! Except that the picture just shows us a brake shop on the corner in the center of town. That would be cool if that were really the police department a GREAT cozy mystery kinda quirk but in fact, Google is just showing us the center of town.
There is no police force to find, but Google is trying to be helpful here by showing me the town. Even after several different tries, I can't find any reference to how Pewamo is policed. If I were doing factual research, I would have to call the township office, but since we're just looking for a model for our cozy mystery series, I'm not going to bother. I'll just go with the Westphalia model, or go searching for another tiny town with more information. Similar number of streets, maybe a little more spread out. But Bath has its own police department. And if you look it up on Wikipedia, the population is listed as over Well, the reason is simple: Bath is not a village or town.
Normally a township is not so much a governmental body as a simple geographic location. Each township is six miles square, with 36 one mile sections. They gave them names, but they didn't turn them into governmental bodies.
It's just a way of saying where something is. And sometimes people in a township will charter a local government, and sometimes they don't. So the actual downtown of Bath is a teeny tiny town, with a police department and police chief -- but the township covers a lot of rural territory. Bath also has one other factor: It has a whole lot of acre farms, and acre lots. Another variation on the tiny town: Beulah, Michigan is smaller than Pewamo.
