CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - On Thursday afternoon, the city of Charlottesville launched its new show, Cville360. The goal is to let people know how the city is handling the pandemic.
The show is hosted by city spokesperson Brian Wheeler. Thursday’s episode featured both Mayor Nikuyah Walker and City Manager Tarron Richardson.
Richardson says it’s important for people to know that Charlottesville City Hall is still open for business, even though many are working remotely. He says leaders are busy working to provide support for those who need it, while also working hard to ensure Charlottesville’s most vulnerable populations, including the homeless and low-income communities, are protected.
Mayor Walker says the city is also working to support those on the front lines every day, like police and firefighters. She says this is uncharted territory for all of us.
“For all of us, this is a new experience. We are going to be learning as we go, and we’re going to have to make sure that we are making decisions that maybe the people above us at the state and federal levels are not ready to make, or maybe they’re tiptoeing around," Mayor Walker said.
Cville360 will air online every Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. and every Thursday at 4:00 p.m. It’s also available over the air on Channel 10 inside Charlottesville city limits.
