With just two weeks in office, Mayor Alvin Brown’s call for job creation might be boosted Thursday when the Jacksonville Economic Development Commission considers incentives to create 205 jobs among two targeted industries – medical and aviation services. The commission is scheduled to meet at 9 a.m. Thursday at City Hall to consider incentives for Medtronic Xomed Inc. to add 175 jobs at its Southpoint operation and for KCI Aviation of West Virginia to create 30 jobs at Cecil South on land owned by the Jacksonville Aviation Authority.
