Charlottesville Community Engagement for March 23, 2024: A look at some of what’s in the city’s draft FY25 budget

Good morning and welcome to Charlottesville Community Engagement for Saturday. March 23. What is this? It’s a weekly look at some of what’s been happening in local and regional government in the part of Virginia where WTJU broadcasts. I’m Sean Tubbs, a journalist keen on writing as much as I can and sharing it in a variety of places.

This website is one of those places! I created this in 2005 as an experiment and that’s still what I aim to do every day I’m at work. This is another example of Town Crier Productions.
