ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

It’s been a busy week for city leaders as Alexandria City Public Schools, the City Council, and even the Sheriff’s Office faced new problems.

Meanwhile, local leaders have been working to adapt in one way or another to the change in state leadership. ACPS is carefully eyeing Governor Glenn Youngkin’s budget plans to see how they’ll impact a proposed raise for staff. It’s been a week of new opportunities for others, with former City Council candidate Monique Miles nabbing a state-level attorney position.

The city, meanwhile, is facing the prospect of a showdown on Saturday as local labor activists and economic development experts square off over a proposed hotel development. City and school leaders are also poised to move forward with final designs for the Minnie Howard campus overhaul — part of a plan to expand capacity and services at the campus to make it a bigger part of single unified Alexandria City High School.
