CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Charlottesville City Officials are considering a consolidation of government, schools, and police in a new proposed office complex.

On Thursday night, councilors held a work session to discuss current infrastructure and the Capital Improvement Program. The new 200,000 square foot center would house City Hall, the police department, and the school division all under one roof.

The current building that houses City Hall was originally built in 1925 before expanding in 1967. Officials believe a new complex would help reduce maintenance costs by nearly $1 million a year.
