“This afternoon, Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris, EDGE President and CEO Reid Dulberger, and Greater Memphis Chamber Senior Vice President Eric Miller and I met with Electrolux representatives,” Mayor Jim Strickland said. “Shortly after the meeting, Electrolux informed us that it is voluntarily releasing its PILOT, meaning it will begin to pay the full taxable amount on the property. During the meeting, Electrolux reiterated my comments from yesterday that a tough global economy, rising tariffs and losing a major product retailer has had a significant impact on its business. We made our expectation clear that our number one priority was taking care of the employees that will lose their livelihoods. In addition, we asked for the land and buildings to be returned to the citizens who paid for them. We will keep the lines of communications open and continue to work towards a resolution to the benefit of Memphis and Shelby County.”
