Is it a new tool that Alexandria could use to help pay for much-needed street projects?
Or is it a way for the city to burden residents with another fee?
The Alexandria City Council grappled with the idea at its meeting Monday night.
Sure, the “big” races for president, Congress and state Legislature are grabbing headlines.
