8/22/19: JEA's Future; 'Void' Pro Am; Taste of The Weekend

Aug 22, 2019

Local utility JEA is still moving ahead with plans to build a new downtown headquarters. This, in spite of the fact the utility is soliciting bids to potentially sell to a private company.

So what’s next for JEA? And how will any changes impact customers? Kerri Stewart, Vice President and Chief Customer Officer at JEA, joined us for a closer look.
