Mayor Lenny Curry delivers his budget message on Thursday, July 21, 2022.

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

  • Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry gave his eighth and final budget address this week. He asked the City Council to slightly reduce the property tax rate for a general fund budget that will total $1.55 billion. A separate list of capital improvement projects will clock in at $500 million.
  • The candidates running to replace Duval County Sheriff Mike Williams have been making the rounds lately at a series of forums around town.
  • The delayed effect of a change in Florida election law showed up this month in the mailboxes of about 33,000 Duval County voters who learned they must update their records if they want to request a mail-in ballot by going online or calling the election office.
