Monday night the Charlottesville City Council will hear recommendations on the future of the historic Jefferson School.

The council is set to decide whether or not to turn the property over to a general partner - making it eligible for a federal tax credit. The credit is worth about $4 million and will help pay for the building's restorations.

The council is also expected to make a decision on establishing a board for the African American Heritage and Cultural center, which would be part of the restored school.

The meeting gets underway at 7 p.m.
