Friends of Hemming Park recently stopped live music in Downtown’s central park during weekday lunch hours due to budget constraints and feedback from City Council that city dollars should not be spent on programming or events.

That announcement came on the heels of city government  concerns over a recent audit and a general reduction of funding for the group.Now, a private sponsor, Jax Vision Care, is stepping up to provide live music in the park.
