Do You Know the Best Parking Spots for Holiday Shopping?

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Besides the packed stores, parking is always a headache during the holiday shopping season.

That's why we asked you where your favorite parking spots are around town.

For the past several days, many of our viewers posted great parking suggestion for the St. Johns Town Center, Jacksonville's Northside and Arlington on our First Coast News Facebook page.

One of the best parking tips suggested online, is taking advantage of the 4 valet parking drop-off spots at the St. Johns Town Center; the cost is just $5 for all day use.

The four locations are at several of the center's eateries: At Cheesecake Factory, Maggiano's, at Cantina Laredo (near The Capital Grille), and the nearby J. Alexander's

Anyone can use the valet parking; not just restaurant customers.

Council Passes Bill to Monitor Big Spending, Considers Library Cuts

Council Passes Bill to Monitor Big Spending, Considers Library Cuts

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- There was a swath of red in council chambers Tuesday night, worn in protest to the proposed deep cuts to library funding.
    
The city's Finance Committee recommended reducing the library's $39 million dollar by about $3.5 million.
    
Library staffers, volunteers and patrons said the resulting cuts in services would reduce the quality of life in Jacksonville and remove a vital resource for job seekers.

"Our libraries are the place where anybody who does not have a computer at home, the libraries are the only place where there's free access to computers," said a member of the Friends of Murray Hill Library.

A final vote on the matter is expected later this month.
