Charlottesville City Council kicked off its work on the 2015 budget.

Council and staff held a work session on Charlottesville's 2015 budget, the first budget meeting with both council and staff.

Council discussed what they wanted and needed to spend money on, and how much money Charlottesville makes and spends. Setting the guidelines of what they want helps staff prepare the budget they will present to council next March.

"We've been working on the budget now, for many, many months now, but it's our first real in depth conversation with City Council as to what they'd like to see in the budget for fiscal year '15 and beyond," said Maurice Jones, the City Manager. "It was a very, very good discussion this evening to give staff some great direction as we're developing the budget over the course of the next two months."

Staff will formally present the budget to council March 3. Council will adopt the budget on April 11.
