FDIC Sues Arlington — “The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is suing Arlington County for a tax refund, alleging the county assessed its Virginia Square office buildings too high during the pandemic years, perhaps portending more such quarrels if office vacancy remains high and drives down values. The FDIC owns a handful of parcels just north of the Virginia Square-GMU Metro station.” [Washington Business Journal]

Condo Fire Near Rosslyn — “Scanner: ACFD is on scene of a fire in a unit at the Memorial Overlook condo building near Rosslyn. Sounds like most of the fire is out but they’re looking for additional flames in the ceiling and evaluating one potential injury.” [Twitter]

New Historical Marker Planned — “Some details remain to be worked out, but plans are moving forward on the quest to honor the late Evelyn Reid Syphax with an historical marker at the Arlington school system’s headquarters. Syphax (1926-2000) was an educator, civic leader and philanthropist. Among her achievements was service on the county School Board.” [Sun Gazette]

Drug Charges After Speeders Stopped — “Remember this one? @ArlingtonVaPD with details about a car that initially appeared to flee an officer on I-395N but ended up stopping when reaching the back-up at the bridge. Two drug arrests from that encounter.” [Twitter]

Falls Church Meets Emissions Goal — “Greenhouse gas emissions in the City of Falls Church reduced by 22 percent since 2005, according to the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ Community-Wide Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory Summaries. This achievement surpasses a goal set in the City’s 2017 Community Energy Plan. Despite an estimated 34 percent population growth between 2005 and 2020, the City of Falls Church reduced emissions through a cleaner electrical grid and becoming more efficient on a number of fronts.” [City of Falls Church]

It’s Friday — Partly cloudy throughout the day. High of 53 and low of 41. Sunrise at 7:28 am and sunset at 5:02 pm. []
