Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) - Petersburg city council and the school board are working on a budget.

The school system could be facing a $7.8 million budget shortfall.

The city council spokeswoman told us last night that the city has proposed a 10 percent cut in school funding.

Both federal and state government have also made cuts.
