Incentives up for vote

MOBILE, Ala. -- The city and county vote next week on the incentives used to lure the first Airbus supplier to Mobile. A $70,000 benefit from the city will be voted on by the Mobile City Council Tuesday, and a $24,000 incentive will be voted on by the Mobile County Commissioners Thursday. The state is providing $12,000 to Labinal Engineering, a subsidiary of Safran Engineering Services, a France-based company that will create 50 jobs at Brookley Aeroplex. Airbus plans to build an A320 assembly line this spring. (Source: Mobile Press-Register, 12/14/12) Previous
