Governor Signs Bill to Boost Mayor's Economic Development Initiatives
April 19, 2012
Gives city the authority to alter or amend Jacksonville Economic Development Commission (JEDC)
Last December, the Jacksonville City Council overwhelmingly passed Mayor Brown’s government reform initiative, the first major reorganization of city government in 20 years. That legislation reformed the city’s economic development structure to make it directly accountable to the mayor and includes all city functions that could enhance the mission of creating jobs.
In January 2012, Mayor Brown and the City Council sought the approval of the Florida Legislature to alter or amend the Jacksonville Economic Development Commission (JEDC) as a necessary step to evolve the city’s economic development efforts. Both houses of the Legislature unanimously provided that authority. Today, Governor Rick Scott signed the bill – CS/HB 1253 – which provided that authority.
City Issues Air Quality Advisory: Elevated Levels of Particulate Matter are Projected
April 09, 2012

Children, the elderly and sensitive individuals should take steps to avoid exposure by staying inside or refraining from strenuous outdoor activity.

In addition, outdoor activities should be planned for times when particulate levels are lower.
