The Charlottesville City Council be looking at more requests for money this week. One of the reviews for money will be with Charlottesville City Schools.

The Charlottesville City School Board approved their budget totaling more than $66 million dollars.

The board approved the budget on Thursday, and is now hoping to get its approval from the city council. The school system's director of finance said most of the budget can be attributed to people.

"This year, benefit increases with the Virginia Retirement System in particular, has been an increase with us. Our contractors along with transportation and maintenance crews have brought us some large increases," said Charlottesville City Schools' Director of Finance Ed Gillaspie.

This year's school budget has an increase of almost 7% from last year's school budget.
