NORFOLK -- City Manager Marcus D. Jones released the City of Norfolk's proposed FY 2015 budget to City Council Tuesday night.

The proposed budget includes millions of dollars to support Norfolk Public Schools, neighborhoods and improves efficiencies.

'I am pleased to deliver a structurally balanced budget to the Council four years ahead of my goal,' said Jones. 'We are no longer relying on one-time revenues to fund ongoing expenditures...every dollar spent has a service attached to it.'

The proposed FY 2015 budget focuses on several city priorities which include: building new schools, consolidating neighborhood resources and increasing pay for city workers.

The city council will hold a public hearing on May 7. Council will vote on the FY 2015 Budget next spring.
