From NBC12 News

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -Richmond City Council has finalized its budget proposal, which is due for a vote May 26.

The Richmond Times Dispatch reports council introduced amendments to support a $630 million budget.

That is slightly more than Mayor Dwight Jones' $629 dollar plan.

Neither proposal includes raises for city workers.

Council added money for Maymont Park, leaf collection, and a study for the proposed ballpark in Shockoe Bottom.
