Whether a brewed cup of coffee or tea or a cold brew of ale is preferred, Lynchburg residents are invited to come chat with City Manager, Wynter C. Benda during three “Budget and Brews” sessions to discuss the proposed Fiscal Year 2023 budget. 

Each year, the City goes through the process of deliberating over the proposed budget, which includes funding for general government services, schools, fleet, airport, water, sewer, stormwater and other funds. 

These “budget and brews” informal meetings are ways the City Manager would like to engage with citizens and allow them to comment on the proposed budget, ask questions and offer input.
