Fredericksburg safety officials urge residents to stay off the roadways to allow plow crews to clear the streets for safer travel. Our crews are working to plow and treat roadways but efforts continue to be hampered by vehicles and numerous large limbs and trees in the roadways. With the heavy wet snow, emergency services has had at least 30 runs for either downed trees, downed wires or both. The Police Department administrative phone lines are not working at this time. If you have a non-emergency need for the Police, please call (540) 373-1414. If you have an emergency, please call 911.
According to the Dominion Power outage map, it appears that at least 3,000 city customers are without power at this time. Dominion has over 225,000 customers without power, system wide in Virginia. The majority of customers are located on Route 1 south from Route 3 to the city line including part of Idlewild and Westmont subdivisions. Also upper Lafayette Boulevard from top of the hill out to city line. See https://www.fredericksburgva.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1313 for more details. Call and/or walk safely to check on your neighbors. Stay safe!

Please, please stay off the roads unless it is absolutely necessary. This photo is from Route 3 traveling west just past William Street around 11:30am. No traffic was moving due to a tractor trailer stuck in the roadway further up the road. Let our crews do their plow work and our public safety employees get to the true emergencies. We need your assistance in keeping everyone safe today, into the evening as well. Please and thank you! #lovefxbg

♻️ Bring Your Bag FXBG!

Beginning on January 1, 2022, the City of Fredericksburg will implement a five-cent ($0.05) tax on disposable plastic bags provided to customers in local grocery stores, convenience stores, and pharmacies within city limits. The store collects the tax at the time of the sale. Money raised by this tax goes to support environmental cleanups, litter and pollution mitigation, environmental education efforts, and to provide reusable bags to recipients of SNAP or WIC benefits.

Plastic bags have a major impact on the environment because it takes hundreds of years to for them to breakdown, and even then they never truly decompose. During the production of plastic bags, greenhouse gas emissions are created and released into the atmosphere. These emissions carry toxic chemical properties that pose a threat to human and environmental health. By adopting the Plastic Bag Tax, the City of Fredericksburg is committing to its vision of creating a green, clean environment for the whole community.

For more information, please visit the City’s website: https://www.fredericksburgva.gov/1799/Plastic-Bag-Tax.

Please open the hockey rink at Dixon Park. That is an outdoor activity and allowed by the Governor.
People please quit littering in the parks it is the only place we have for children to go right now and when they’re covered with glitter it’s not a good thing take care of the one thing we have left please put your trash in trash cans that are all around even though the park could add a few through the trails..This was all found in the same day and I probably could’ve took 20 more pictures
It has come to my attention that Shenks Towing in Fredericksburg is randomly sweeping through apartment complexes and towing cars, that were legally parked. They are then charging $200 a day for people to get their cars back. They are going to complexes with elderly residents! Please help!
St Paddy’s Parade this year?
Noticing the American History Month banner on the website inspired me to share this Youtube video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfxfxSgSlGM This video is about the Rosenwald schools that were the result of the partnership and friendship of Frederick Douglas and Julius Rosenwald. In the divisive world we live in today, this video may serve as an inspiration of hope. When we work hand in hand, we can do great things!
What opportunities are there to volunteer or become civically engaged in the City? Anything with a partisan election is not feasible for me because of workplace ethics rules.
so how does a city resident contact public works today as apparently the city offices are closed
I wanted to thank the Public Works Department for their hard work making sure the VCR trail was clean and leaf free this morning! It made our daily ride to school much safer, especially with the wet conditions. Thank you!
Power back for those of us in the small area that was out!
Power outage update for Normandy Village neighbors. There was a power line down and believed a fire. Crews are currently working the issue and ensuring all is well before turning power back on. Dominion Energy states no later than noon. 👍
Our power is out since 2am with no end in site can we get am update?
Shout out to the Fredericksburg road crews! Great job clearing the roads after this snow.
