Charlottesville City Manager Maurice Jones recommended a $161,871,784 budget to City Council, a 3.5 percent increase over fiscal year 2016.  Council was briefed on Jones' budget and the school's funding request on March 7, 2016.  Several groups complained at a budget forum in late March after not receiving their full-funding request. For instance, Legal Aid Justice Center claimed they should not be reviewed through the Agency Budget Review Team process. 
Council made several changes to the capital budget in late March including reductions for the McIntire Skate Park. They also restored $30,000 in funding for the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center that had not been recommended by the Agency Budget Review Team. Council opted not to put any money aside to purchase the Landmark Hotel. 
In their last budget work session, Council made several adjustments. 
- Agreed to provide additional $75,217 in funds for registrar to help with presidential race
- Agreed to fund part-time deputy city council clerk
- Increased amount of funding for redevelopment specialist
- Added back $50,000 for McIntire Skate Park
- Added $80,000 in funds for Daughters of Zion Cemetery
City Council approved a $156,391,435 budget for FY2016 in April 2016.
