we currently have well water in our house, but I am thinking of connecting to the county water supply. There is a main line running in front of our house. The county will bring the connection upto the property line, but I am contacting a plumber to find out the best palce to bring the connection into the house. I would appreciate any advice on what questions to ask the plumber and things to be careful about in the installation process. thanks much

The front wall would be the best location. Ask your plumber about the frost line. How deep the pipe should be to protect against freezing. If your in a mild climate, then CPVC may be acceptable. Normally it's 3/4" type "K" copper tubing for potable water mains. Some codes and pressures will vary.
