Social Media

The goal of the City's social media activities is to engage the community in various digital platforms, including social media Web sites where people are participating in rapidly increasing numbers. The objective is to strengthen City responsiveness and transparency by using multiple tools to inform the community about City events, programs, services, emergencies and more. The information will be useful, timely and easy to understand.


AlexTV is the City of Alexandria's government access channel, which broadcasts government meetings, announcements, public interest and informational programming to residents of the City of Alexandria and its visitors. Live and archived programming from AlexTV is available online and broadcasted on Comcast cable channel 70.

RSS Feeds

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) lets web publishers distribute informational "feeds" that include headlines, summaries, links to full Web pages, and even music, videos, and photos to Web users, and lets Web users collect this information from many different sources across the Internet. Use the City's RSS feeds to learn about the latest updates to the Web site as soon as they're posted.


The Office of Communications & Public Information fosters open, accountable and effective government by developing, coordinating and delivering meaningful and responsive communications for the community and for City employees.
