ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

Other than the stabbing, this week was relatively sedate — especially compared to last week.

With the drama behind Governor Youngkin’s recent visit mostly in the rearview mirror, the city’s been getting to the internal business of budget issues. Residential property assessments are up and hotel revenue down, not to mention an election safely behind a new Council, but remains to be seen whether the city will see a tax rate increase.

On the bright side, Alexandria’s Covid numbers have been trending down.
