Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Fountain Lake is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Fountain Lake is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Fountain Lake who work in office and administrative support (13.27%), healthcare (8.67%) and management occupations (7.14%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.25% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Fountain Lake has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Fountain Lake a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
In Fountain Lake, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 32.56 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
As is often the case in a small town, Fountain Lake doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
