Our water smells like a sewer, our schools are ranked some of the lowest in the state, our libraries are closing, our roads have pot holes and the City of Jacksonville thinks spending tax payers money on a swimming pool and palm trees at the stadium is going to make things better. For who? This is an atrocity. This should not be allowed. How dare they do this !!!!!!

Just wish we had a winning team, that would be the way to fill the seats. I think alot of people are missing the point when they say the money that is being spent is for capital improvemnts and that's all it can be spent on. I know,there are plenty of improvements around this city that the money would have been better spent on but that's our leaders not doing the best thing for Jacksonville.

Way to go Jacksonville, lets close libraries, cut police force, cut paramedics and firemen, close schools , eliminate teaching positions , who are the people running Jacksonville, a bunch of loose nuts who do not know what the hell they are doing! Is the old scoreboard malfunctioning, hell no, put the money where it belongs and that is taking care of things we need, not what we want and can't afford!

THE CITY OF JACKSONVILLE WOULD RATHER PAY 36.4 MILLION DOLLARS FOR A NEW "JUMBOTRON" AND "PARTY" AREA FOR THE JAGUARS THAN PAY 2.4 MILLION TO KEEP 6 - 8 REGIONAL/LOCAL LIBRARIES OPEN FOR ITS CHILDREN! THE CITY OF JACKSONVILLE COVERS 874.3 SQUARE MILES! WE NEED REGIONAL/LOCAL LIBRARIES! CONTACT THE MAYOR'S OFFICE! CONTACT THE JAGUARS OFFICE! SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW! WE EXPECT MORE FROM OUR CITY LEADERS!

Well as sad as this is, the ONLY thing that will get me down there is Kahn investing on a 'WINNING TEAM', not the field. And as far as placing the blame, Thank OBama and all his blind followers and liberal crooks and croney's for the closing library's, firestation's, etc...and also, as sad as this is, IT'S ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE. ...I hate to say I told ya'll so, but I did, years ago.

OK, I'll bite. If Shad khan is putting up $20M of the $63M, who's putting up the other $43M? The City of Jacksonville? The City that's millions in the hole on its pension fund contributions? The one that's going to have to close fire stations? The one that's going to close libraries? What is this? Wonderland? I'd rather have a close by fire station than a closed fire station and an improved Everbank Field. But then, what do I know?

Good job Jacksonville . Lets just spend more money on useless things. How about increasing water quality or making your electrcity bill more affordable. This makes me think of the last days of Rome. While an invading army surrounded Rome, the Romans watched gladiatorial games up until the last day when Rome burned. Also it's kinda funny how this news station reports on this huge score board being the largest in the world and then reports on resources are low at the beaches. These people are living in a fairy tale. Wake up and deal with the truth about our economy. If Shad Khan wants to help Jacksonville , he can bring a large manufacturing plant here. Those would be better actions.....

you know its real sad that we hear they are going to close libraries, and fire stations around the city, but have enough money to spend on something really does nothing for the city except want more money.
