Between the free Wi-Fi internet in Old Town, to streaming the City Council meetings online, to having government services available on the city website, Alexandria is a great technology town.
One of the services that I think is really under publicized is the eNews service that has been built by the city staff and is a real goldmine of current information and news.
And for the paranoid in you, number #1a is - Emergency Management Tips & News/Emergency Alerts from Alexandria, the District of Columbia and Arlington, Fairfax County, Loudoun, Montgomery, and Stafford Counties.
Boards and Commissions Vacancies
Oh yes, and the best thing is this service is free! There is no cost to sign up for eNews, although your wireless provider may charge you to receive e-mail or text messages on your mobile device. If you already use e-mail or text messaging, eNews messages will work the same way. Contact your wireless provider if you have any questions about the fees they may charge.
