Elected officials in Charlottesville-Albemarle meet to discuss collaboration and cooperation

Reader comments (0)

On Saturday, April 24, 2010, Delegate David Toscano convened the first ever joint meeting of the Charlottesville City Council, the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors, and the elected city and county school boards.  Toscano, who represents all of Charlottesville and portions of Albemarle in the 57th district in the Virginia General Assembly, called the meeting for city and county leaders to discuss areas for future cooperation.

The impetus for the meeting was disagreement between the city and county during the 2010 general assembly session related to a budget amendment that sought to take revenue sharing into account for education funding.  Had the budget amendment requested by Delegate Rob Bell passed, Albemarle would have gained about $2.8 million in education funding.  Charlottesville’s education funding was to be lowered by the same amount. The budget amendment would not have altered the 1982 revenue sharing agreement.

The meeting was held in the Paul Goodloe McIntire Room of the McIntire Library on Market Street in Charlottesville.  See coverage by The Daily Progress.
