Vienna Town Council members in 2021 hope to help businesses survive the pandemic, embark on some new sidewalk projects and keep providing sought-after services.
Despite ongoing challenges, the town is maintaining services upon which residents depend, such as police, parks and recreation, public works and street repair, he said.
The Council should stay abreast of the economic downturn and businesses affected by it, especially in early 2021, said Council member Charles Anderson.
Council member Ray Brill Jr. is encouraging residents to buy gift certificates from local stores, but not use them until next summer, to give those businesses a cash infusion now.
After running into push-back last year from some residents regarding sidewalks on their streets, officials have cast a wide net to see if people living on streets that qualify under Robinson’s bequest want walkways built there.
