Today’s Media Roundtable discussed some of the top stories in the First Coast, including:

  • The Jacksonville City Council gave $4.6 million of the American Rescue Plan, used for COVID-19 relief, to dozens of nonprofit organizations. Many of the organizations have connections to city leaders who chose them.
  • A unanimous vote granted $114 million in public monies to fund Jaguar’s owner Shad Khan’s Four Seasons Hotel and Residences.
  • Jacksonville’s chief administrative officer told the City Council that curbside recycling will be suspended for six months or longer.
  • The Duval County Public School board voted to keep their mask mandate in place as they joined with six other districts to sue the state over Gov. DeSantis’ ban on student mask mandates.
