Friday Media Roundtable; Paula Poundstone at WJCT Soundstage
Friday's First Coast Connect with Melissa Ross featured some of the top stories of the week, including:
- More controversy surrounding a possible JEA sale.
- City Council plans to start a new resiliency committee to deal with climate change.
- And the Jacksonville Landing is coming down. But what's next for the festival marketplace?
Discussing a busy newsweek we welcomed:
- Nate Monroe with The Florida Times-Union;
- Mike Mendhall with the Jacksonville Daily Record;
- And radio host Angela Spears of Angela Spears Communications;
After facing criticism from City Council members, JEA now says it will not move forward with a long-term performance pay plan for its employees. The plan would have potentially given a huge financial windfall to JEA employees that participated, especially the highly paid senior staff, if the utility were sold.

We caught up with her for a preview.
