Investing Today for Tomorrow

To fulfill promises made to the citizens of Jacksonville throughout the decades prior to his time in office, Mayor Lenny Curry, in partnership with the Jacksonville Transportation Authority, is proposing to increase the Local Option Gas Tax in a new program called Jobs for Jax. According to a new study by the University of North Florida, this program could create as many as 7,640 local jobs and fund approximately $1.6 billion in infrastructure improvements and transportation enhancement projects to improve our roadways and fix drainage issues.
