Alert

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Alexandria area for Thursday, March 5, 2015, from midnight to 9 p.m. A snow emergency has been declared for the City of Alexandria, with enforcement of snow emergency routes to begin at 7 a.m. on Thursday, March 5. City offices and facilities will be closed on Thursday, March 5.  Emergency personnel should report as scheduled. Significant accumulation of ice and snow is expected, which means that travel could be dangerous and some residential roads may not be clear until later in the week. Because the storm is expected to begin with rain, pre-treating streets with salt brine will not be effective. This type of precipitation often results in power outages.

The closure of the Warwick pool would be a loss to the neighborhood and Alexandria. As a resident of the area who spent numerous days at the pool last summer, I never saw a time that it wasn't heavily utilized. Raising the entrance fees or, perhaps, cutting the overblown salary of the city manager would do as much or more towards balancing the budget than closing the pool. A community is more than just houses.
