The City Council advances on pursuit of 2035 sustainability goals with recent budget actions by funding a new Environmental Sustainability Coordinator, purchasing new Police hybrid vehicles, and supporting an Energy Services Contract for government and school buildings.

The new Environmental Sustainability Coordinator position has been advertised and recruitment is underway. When hired, this individual will work with the Public Works Department and be dedicated to important environmental efforts, including: renewable energies, sustainable design and construction, water efficiency, waste to energy recycling, stormwater management and more. This important role is essential to coordinating efforts throughout City Departments and agencies, and in engaging local businesses and citizens to build a holistic network of sustainability practices, opportunities, and in pursuing grants and funding partnerships. Utilizing this position, the City will begin to more robustly make strides in providing a comprehensive and organized response to climate change and resources conservation.

Additionally, the Fredericksburg Police Department has received the green light to purchase nine hybrid electric vehicles this calendar year. They are being acquired after a recommendation from the Virginia Clean Cities (VCC) fleet analysis report, which indicated hybrid electric vehicles may provide the desired balance of readiness, reliability and fuel savings. This report also estimates a dramatic reduction of roughly 55% in carbon emissions from each new vehicle. The full VCC Electrify Virginia Fleet Analysis is available online.

These energy efficient vehicles will comprise nearly 25% of the Police Department’s fleet, and is serving as the pilot project for the rest of the City’s hybrid vehicle solutions. The Department will seek to transition their fleet to fully hybrid, which will further reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions over time.

Evaluating potential improvements in the City’s government buildings and schools is also key to improving energy efficiency and conservation in Fredericksburg. The City and the Schools are currently in the process of contracting with a qualified energy services company to assist with evaluating potential improvements to City and School facilities. Known as an Energy Services Contract (ESCO), this contract would take advantage of future savings from energy efficiency improvements to help finance the up-front costs of the improvements to city buildings. The City and Schools have consulted with officials of the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy, who have state-wide experience with these type of contracts.

“This City/Schools partnership is a model Commonwealth of Virginia example of good stewardship. We also hope to learn from the forward leaning efforts of the Fredericksburg Police Department as they lead the way on the City’s alternative fuel vehicles. These cost saving and environmentally sensitive approaches are just the beginning as the City of Fredericksburg becomes increasingly aggressive in green initiatives in order to live Council’s Vision,” said City Manager Tim Baroody.

The City’s commitment to a Clean and Green Fredericksburg is clear in that City Council adopted a 100% Renewable Energy Resolution in December 2019 and committed to the goal of powering municipal operations with 100% renewable energy by 2035. The City is committed to achieving these aggressive goals with the exceptional partnership with the Clean and Green Committee, Tree Fredericksburg, and Fossil Free Fredericksburg, among others.

Tip, Toss and Cover! Now that the summer heat is upon us, it is prime mosquito time. Make the time to walk around your yard and look for standing water. Even the smallest amount like in saucers under flower pots, can be a breeding ground. Be sure to use insect repellent when you are enjoying the outdoors. #fightthebite #lovefxbg #fxbggov

💬 Fredericksburg Regional Transit (FRED) is seeking public comment on its proposed goal for participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) in its federally funded procurements and its updated Title VI Program.

As a recipient of U.S. DOT funding, FRED has established a DBE Program to ensure DBEs have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in DOT-assisted contracts. FRED is required to establish a goal for its use of DBEs in its procurement of goods and services and to seek public input on that goal. A draft calculation has been prepared that sets that goal at 2.4 percent of all DOT-assisted procurement opportunities for FY2022-24. The methodology for calculating the DBE goal and the full text for FRED’s DBE Program and Title VI Program can be found at RideFRED.com. Copies can also be obtained at 1400 Jefferson Davis Highway, Fredericksburg, VA, 22401, or by requesting a copy by email from Ms. Sharon Sullivan at [email protected]. FRED will accept written and/or emailed comments on the proposed DBE goal until July 20, 2021.

📅 FRED will host a virtual public meeting on June 28, 2021 at 9:00 am to discuss its Title VI non-discrimination policy and provide an opportunity to comment on the DBE goal. This will be a GoToMeeting, which can be joined by using the following address: https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/268913885 or by phone: (312) 757-3121 and enter Access Code: 268-913-885.

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.
