Charter; City of Alexandria.  Amends the charter of the City of Alexandria so that the board of review of real estate assessment is composed of nine members rather than five members, with five members appointed by the circuit court and four members appointed by city council. The bill further amends the charter to allow the board of review to sit in panels of at least three members each, with each panel performing its duties independently of the others. This legislation also changes the standard by which a variance can be granted by eliminating the requirement for a showing of a hardship "approaching confiscation." Read the Bill »
