It was a busy week in Alexandria, with the City Council back in session and changes on the horizon for local restaurants.

The Polk Avenue sidewalk saga came to its close with the City Council voting unanimously to strike down an appeal, authorizing the city to move forward with plans to build a new sidewalk on the north side of the street.

The School Board also met this week and called into question the validity of a study on safety in the schools — not long after city leaders pushed back against claims from state officials that Alexandria City Public Schools were unsafe.
