WEEK IN REVIEW: Plans for Next Week’s Inauguration in Place

With the 57th Presidential Inauguration, some Northern Virginia police agencies are preparing to assist the Washington Metropolitan Police Department with security.

As hundreds of people plan to venture to Washington, D.C. for the inauguration, some local hotels are offering deals and shorter stays to get people in.

Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s plan to increase the size of its trains to get people around won’t be ready for the inauguration, but the system rolled out its plan to get people around in Falls Church last week. The five year plan requires more input but officials said the plan will make taking the Metro easier.

Joan Wodiska has been a fixture on the Falls Church City Public Schools board for some time and now she has left for a position with the Virginia Board of Education. The school board is accepting letters of interest from city residents to fill Wodiska’s seat until noon Thursday.

Michael Gardner, who was convicted on two counts of sexual battery in May, is seeking an appeal. There is no time frame for any arguments or any hearings scheduled.

City of Falls Church Police were busy the first week of the New Year making four drug arrests.
