Complaint Against Alexandria Filed With State

An opponent to the establishment of new stormwater utility rates has filed a complaint with the state’s public access counselor against the City of Alexandria. Jennifer Ward’s complaint says City Clerk-Treasurer Jill Scott failed to respond to her requests for a copy of the financial report the city has based the utility rates on. Scott said she responded to the initial request, but denied it for being too vague. Public Access Counselor Luke Britt said an opinion on Ward’s complaint is expected by June 25th.
