Freightliner dealer awarded tax rebate from city

Jason Cannon April 18, 2013

The Parma City Council approved a 12-year economic development agreement with Valley Freightliner, Sterling, Western Star, The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.

The dealership moved to Parma, Ohio in December after a fire forced a move from Brook Park.

A fire raged the morning of Aug. 6 2012 in the truck shop, eventually causing $6 million in damages, including nearly $1 million in parts and approximately a dozen used trucks.

William H. Crawley, an employee of the truck store and shop, was eventually charged with arson in connection to the early morning blaze

Under the terms of the agreement, the newspaper reported, the city of Parma agreed to rebate 46 percent of the company’s payroll taxes. Valley Freightliner, in return, is to use those funds to create 10 new jobs over the next two years.
