JEA's downtown headquarters building is pictured behind Jacksonville's City Hall.

Friday's First Coast Connect with Melissa Ross featured some of the top stories of the week, including:

  • More controversy surrounding JEA.
  • The city’s attorney general declined to weigh in on the proposed Duval sales tax.
  • JU is ending its football program but Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew will be the starting quarterback for this Sunday's matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.

To discuss the week in news we welcomed:

Currently, nine entities are negotiating to buy all or part of JEA. City Councilwoman, Brenda Priestly Jackson has filed legislation that would encourage JEA Board's to end its negotiations for the potential sale of city owned utility.
