One Manassas Park restaurant was cited for soiled cutting boards and dirty floors while a Manassas eatery was cited for having open employee drink containers around food.
Want to know how area restaurants performed in their last Virginia Department of Health inspection? Restaurants in the Commonwealth are inspected between one and four times a year. There are two types of violations: critical and non-critical. What's the difference?

Manassas City Council members spent hours Thursday thinking about the big picture—what makes the city valuable and what needs improvement.
Manassas city council members spent most of the day Thursday thinking of good answers to two very simple questions: “15 years from now, what in Manassas do you want to keep and what do you want to change?” Concise answers to those questions were the objective on the first day of a two-day city council retreat, led by University of Virginia Professor A. Tyler St. Clair and City Manager John Budesky. City council members had plenty to talk about. They quickly settled on a statement of identity for the city in 27 years: “Manassas is known as an affluent family-friendly community with best-in-class schools and strong business development.” Councilman Mark Wolfe elaborated on what making that statement a reality might entail. He envisioned an…
