City Council will meet Tuesday, June 18, in a business session at 7 p.m., followed by a work session. Both sessions are open to the public.

The business session will be held in the Council Chambers on the fourth floor of the Municipal Building, which is located at 427 Patton St.

The work session will be held on the same floor, but across the hall in the Council Conference Room. In work sessions, Council reviews non-routine matters that will be voted upon in future business meetings.

River City TV, the city’s government access channel, will air the business session. Watch it live on cable (Comcast channel 10 and Gamewood channel 122) or streaming on the River City TV Facebook page.

During the business session, the City Council is scheduled to vote on adoption of the full budget that will serve as a framework for city operations from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020.

As proposed, Danville Public Schools would receive an increase of $2.3 million or 11.2 percent. Crime and public initiatives total $1.5 million, and $2.1 million would be dedicated for economic development grants and incentives.

In addition, the Danville Life Saving Crew would receive a $280,000 increase – from $80,000 to $360,000.

Earlier this month, City Council held a public hearing on the budget.

Several other matters are on the agenda for the business session. Votes are scheduled on:

  • A budget amendment to grant a lump sum bonus to qualified City of Danville retirees.
  • A resolution to adopt a support agreement with the Danville-Pittsylvania Regional Industrial Facility Authority.
  • A resolution authorizing the city manager to submit a plan for projects and activities supported by federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investments Partnership Program (HOME) funds.

During the work session, City Council will review the latest financial reports, consider a proposal to amend the rules of procedure for City Council meetings, and hear a presentation on a sports tourism study.
