A few things to know for Monday – from Charlottesville and Albemarle seeking tax increases, a grocery store is moving, and Albemarle County’s lost week of school.
- Albemarle County seeking to raise property taxes – this plus the general increase in assessed values. If they’d dedicate some of this tax increase to infrastructure, I’d be ok with it.
- City of Charlottesville trying to increase the meals tax. Know what? Albemarle County has some pretty good restaurants. Parallel 38 and Pasture Q come to mind.
- The Kroger on 29 is moving across the street to where the Giant used to be in Seminole Square.
- Onetab is my favorite new extension for Chrome.
- Americans are having more trouble paying off their student loans than their houses.
- I wonder … will tiny apartments like this work in Charlottesville?
- Albemarle County is a mostly-rural county, and I remain curious as to what percentage of roads being unsafe leads to the County closing schools.
- The County’s facebook page is interesting.
- And this, taken Sunday morning (since then, the County announced a 2 hour delay) –
