You wanted to know how the city plans to pay for millions of dollars worth of stadium improvements even while there's a multimillion-dollar hole in the budget.
"I think there's a place for sports in a community, but you cannot replace what a public library is for a community," said Carla Forest, who tells us she's concerned about those funds not going toward the libraries in danger of closing.
So we took your concerns to the mayor's office. Spokespman David DeCamp told Action News the City plans on paying for their $43 million part of the improvement with money they say couldn't be used anywhere else; with a capital projects fund.
"Capitol programs are one-time-only money that you can't pay for reoccurring operating costs with," said DeCamp.
That means keeping libraries or fire stations open could never be funded with that money. Capital improvement funds are also being used to fix the Southbank Riverwalk and crumbling city roads. DeCamp says money for those projects will not come from Jacksonville's general fund.
"We're using bonds, standard bonds, that we always do and we're looking at the best way in revenue sources to use to pay this specific," said DeCamp.
DeCamp said the move may put the city in debt but it won't stop it from moving forward with other projects.
In the long run, the Mayor's office says the move will be worth every penny.
