RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond City Council passed a $657 million budget for the 2012 fiscal year.
The spending plan includes $124 million for schools, and council members say it's the leanest budget they've passed in years.
One cut that drew a lot of public comment was to the Fridays at Sunset concert series.
Funding was cut from $125,000 to $50,000.
The mayor pointed out that once again this year, there are no tax hikes, furloughs or layoffs.
