After an aggressive 100-day plan to improve Public Safety and basic city services, Mayor Jacques Roy has released a status report to the citizens of Alexandria.
“Public safety is a basic service; it is a fundamental civil right,” Mayor Jacques Roy has stated with
regard to how Alexandria must see the community. “Well run basic services, cost-effective dependable utilities, and real
commitments to infrastructure are the key elements of a City’s success,” continued Mayor Roy. “In a short time, 100 days,
we have restored electricity security to our ratepayers, cleaned out a massive amount of drainage and diversion bodies,
and ‘just plain’ cleaned up trash around the City. We have completed our plans, on time, to get the City ready for
opportunities—stand by for our post 101-day plans.”
Chief Administrative Officer, Kay Michiels, cautioned, “While we are proud of the unprecedented successes of our team
and city employees in the first 100 days, we are not ready to celebrate. We have successfully triaged and have our arms
around city operations, yet much remains to be done to provide our citizens the first-class services and public safety they
deserve. We commit to continue our unrelenting efforts on their behalf and look forward to day 101 and every day after.
