    Metro received close to 30,000 responses from customers about proposed changes to fares, service and hours. This feedback was considered by Metro's Board and Management to make tough decisions on how to rightsize service, close a budget gap, and provide needed time for preventive maintenance.  While the original proposal called for complete elimination of the 3T Route, the final decision leaves the current route and timetable as-is without any changes.

    At its November 24 meeting, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted to amend the Fairfax County Code to incorporate the Code of Virginia's cruelty to animals provisions along with the tethering provision.

    According to the amendment:

    "It shall be unlawful for any person to tether a dog for more than one hour cumulatively within any 24 hour period, whether or not the tethered dog has been provided adequate space as defined in the Code of Virginia, § 3.2-6500, as amended, unless the dog is under the direct supervision and control of its owner or custodian."

    Fines and penalties for violating the tethering provision, are as follows:

    • First violation - Class 3 misdemeanor, punishable by fine of up to $500.
    • Second violation (whether or not involving the same dog) within one year of first violation - Class 2 misdemeanor, punishable by fine of up to $1,000 and/or penalty of up to six months in jail.
    • All subsequent violations within one year of first violation - Class 1 misdemeanor, punishable by fine of up to $2,500 and/or penalty of up to one year in jail.

    As posted on Facebook by Supervisor Foust:

    "The Board of Supervisors joined me today in endorsing a traffic calming plan developed by Pimmit Hills Citizens Association Taskforce for Pimmit Drive between Lisle Avenue and Friden Drive."

    We are grateful to all for your participation in this effort. We are all looking forward to the installation of these much-needed traffic calming measures. Special thanks to the office of Supervisor John Foust for facilitating the process!

    We've been notified about some upcoming work in the Pimmit Hills area, specifically on Pimmit Court. 

    As part of Fairfax Water's program to improve its water service, the water main in Pimmit Court will be replaced.

    Fairfax Water's contractor, Casper Colosimo and Son, Inc., is scheduled to begin work within the next several weeks. If you are served by public water, your supply may be interrupted for short periods during construction. Traffic flow will be maintained and residents will be able to reach their homes throughout construction. Fairfax Water will emphasize the safety of the public during construction. The contractor will make final roadway repair in accordance with permit requirements when the installation is completed.

    Questions concerning this project are welcomed and should be directed to Jerry Scott, P.E., Chief Construction Engineer, at (703)289-6351 or via email at jscott@fairfaxwater.org.
