Budget forum Wednesday night

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - If you want to comment on the City of Richmond's budget you'll get your chance Wednesday night.

Mayor Dwight Jones will host what he's calling a "community conversation" on next year's spending plan.  Richmonders can participate in the discussion Wednesday at 6:30pm at the Virginia War Memorial.

Keep in mind, Richmond City Council still has to vote on the mayor's proposed budget.

The final draft of Virginia's budget is now officially in the hands of senior legislators.

A dozen senators and a dozen house members will huddle privately for the next few days reconciling differences between each chambers version of the budget. The biggest differences center on public schools, health care funding and transportation.
