The Charlottesville City Council adopted their budget Tuesday night just six weeks after it was released to the public. The total amount grew during that time according to Krisy Hammil, the city’s budget and performance director.
“The City Manager’s proposed budget came to you at $226,239,155,” Hammil said. “Through some continued revenue adjustments last week, we worked through the infamous spreadsheet and Council was able to add some adjustments at just a little two million.”
The total budget for FY2024 is $230,390,146. A full list of the amendments is available here but here are some of the highlights:
- $186,993 for the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center
- $40,000 for the Public Housing Association of Residents
- $126,400 for the Child Health Partnership
- $225,000 for operational funding for the Albemarle Housing Improvement Program
- $500,000 for the Pathways program
- $100,000 for Charlottesville Redevelopment and Housing Authority for resident services
- $850,721 to implement the employee compensation study
- $200,000 for a violence prevention program to be determined
