In the email, Green didn’t give a reason for his resignation, only stating that he enjoyed working on the board.

Jacksonville Mayor Donna Deegan’s office introduced legislation to the Jacksonville City Council on January 10 to appoint Lisa Strange Weatherby to the board.

Weatherby, who is a former JEA board chair, specializes in investment consulting to nonprofits and other organizations. Her appointment still has to be approved by City Council.

The OIG concluded the agency wasted approximately $1.7 million in federal funds.

Alexander was only offered a six-month contract extension through June and has yet to sign it. The next JHA board meeting is Monday.
