The City of Charlottesville has given $400,000 to help make up the authority's budget deficit.

With the money the board passed a $9.3 million budget and that means no programs will be cut.

The city had been withholding payment to the authority since 2001. They say once a deal is finalized they will release the remainder of the funds which is about $1.5 million.

"We have a good proposal that says the city will meet it's obligations the county can work with Rivanna to figure out how they meet there obligation and then we can move forward and come up with a comprehensive strategic plan," said David Brown, Charlottesville Mayor.

The Rivanna board will discuss those strategic plans in the coming months to reach a final decision.
