Have questions about ways to support evacuees arriving in Virginia from Afghanistan? Questions about donations or other ways to assist evacuees should be directed to 2-1-1 Virginia for information and guidance.

At this time, the Commonwealth of Virginia is asking citizens to save donations for long-term resettlement efforts through local refugee resettlement agencies. Community leaders in Virginia are coordinating efforts to store and maintain an inventory of donations for Afghan evacuees who eventually settle in Virginia.

Ask the Mayor of Fredericksburg, VA - Episode 20

Fredericksburg Mayor Mary Katherine Greenlaw is joined by Fredericksburg Police Officer Nick Wagner to talk about a topic that affects all of us: speeding.

We all know the frustrations of modern life and juggling a busy schedule, but speed limits are put in place for a reason. Speeding endangers not only the life of the speeder, but all of the people on the road around them.

The Fredericksburg Police Department recently launched a traffic safety initiative to target areas in the City where distracted driving and speeding have become a public safety concern. They are heavily enforcing speeding, reckless driving, disregard of stop signs, and failure to obey red lights.

Officer Wagner is one of two officers who make up the Traffic Unit. Their focus while on patrol is to increase drivers’ compliance with traffic laws by maintaining a high-profile presence on roadways and through enforcement as well as education. Please watch this week’s episode to find out more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_y4H1vOUow

If you have a question to submit or an episode topic to suggest, please share them at [email protected].

🔴 City of Fredericksburg COVID-19 Update August 23, 2021🔴

Fredericksburg Fire Chief Mike Jones provides an update on COVID-19 case numbers in our area. As of August 23, 2021 COVID-19 cases continue to increase across the Commonwealth, with all health districts in surge phases, except Fairfax which is in slow growth. Models continue to project a significant 4th wave of the virus increasing infections in the coming weeks.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine has been known as the Pfizer Vaccine, and will now be marketed as Comirnaty (koe-mir-na-tee), for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older. The vaccine also continues to be available under emergency use authorization, including for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals.

Vaccinations are seeing a recent increase in our area and that is good, but mask wearing, social distancing and hand washing are still important measures to assist the vaccination efforts in reducing the number of infections.

The primary strain, the Delta variant, is here and Virginians are starting to recognize that and respond accordingly. Vaccinations are still your best defense against the virus and helping prevent severe illness and hospitalizations. Updated weekly metrics on cases, hospitalizations, deaths and vaccination rates for our region are available online here: https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/rappahannock/weekly-metrics/

For information on local vaccine clinics and Covid-19 testing sites, please visit https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/rappahannock/ or call the Rappahannock Area Health District Call Center Monday through Friday from 8am – 4:30pm at (540) 899-4797.

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.
