I am using the Reverse Geocoding Rest API to get addresses for points.  http://geocode.arcgis.com/arcgis/rest/services/World/GeocodeServer

When I do a reverse geocoding for an address in Augusta Maine the city name returned is incorrect.  The city returned is a neighboring town of Chelsea.  Is there a better reverse geocoding service? 

If I geocode an address  83 Edison Dr, Augusta, Maine, 04330 I get the point   "x": -69.818462933916464,  "y": 44.313100364591264

but when I reverse geocode using that point I get  the following.  

{

"address": {

  "Address": "83 Edison Dr",

  "Neighborhood": null,

  "City": "Chelsea",

  "Subregion": null,

  "Region": "Maine",

  "Postal": "04330",

  "PostalExt": null,

  "CountryCode": "USA",

  "Loc_name": "USA.StreetAddress"

},

"location": {

  "x": -69.818462933993914,

  "y": 44.313100364543232,

  "spatialReference": {

  "wkid": 4326,

  "latestWkid": 4326

  }

}

}
