ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

Busy week in Alexandria. The city’s budget process is moving forward, with a maximum tax rate set last week, and details emerging like how the budget will handle the long-awaited body camera program for the Alexandria Police Department. There was also some fun local oddities, like plans to re-sink a couple of the historic ships.

Police also made a pair of relatively high profile arrests: like a man arrested for a shooting in February and another arrested in Texas after allegedly striking Alexandria police officers with his car in an escape attempt last December.

As a side note, yours truly is leaving for a week in Puerto Rico, so James Cullum and new-ish LNN editorial team leader Brandi Bottalico will have the run of the place in the meantime.
