How do I report a pothole?

Is the large shelter at the Alexandria Community Park available to rent? What is the cost?

If you live within the city limits of Alexandria, you are able to reserve the large park shelter (by the fishing dock).  The initial layout is $50 (two $25 checks).  One check is deposited for the event and the other is held until after the event.  As long as the park rules are followed and the trash is cleaned up, the renter will get that second $25 check back after the event.  A reservation form will also need to be completed.  Any city resident wishing to rent the large shelter should call the City Building to check on the date, and the city staff will assist you in making the necessary arrangements.

Do I need a permit to have a garage sale?

No, ONLY IF you plan on having one more than twice a year.  Chapter 116 of Alexandria’s Code of Ordinances (BUSINESS LICENSES), states “Yard sales, garage sales, street sales, and all other similar type sales shall not be required to purchase a license as required herein unless such sales are held by the same person or family or on the same premises more than twice during the period between July 1 through June 30, or if the sale exceeds 3 consecutive days.  In the event the sale exceeds 3 consecutive days or takes place on more than 2 occasions during the licensed period, then a license will be required in the amount of $25 per day.

Keep in mind though that signs advertising your garage sale are only permitted on your property and should not be put at the top of your street.
