All of a sudden, things are happening in Jacksonville.
On a Saturday in mid-February, city leaders announced a deal with the leadership of their police and fire unions that could eventually make Jacksonville one of the first cities in the country to eliminate traditional pension plans.

Driving the sudden progress is Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry.
