Keep Jeep in Toledo: City sends Fiat-Chrysler incentive proposal

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Toledo city leaders sent a formal incentive package aimed at keeping Jeep Wrangler production in the Glass City to Fiat Chrysler on Friday.

A decision from Chrysler could come sooner than the June 1 deadline.

While the City is not releasing specific incentive details, a city spokeswoman says the package "has been designed to ensure that Toledo offers the company the most competitive site."

"FCA US looks forward to reviewing the incentive package assembled by the City of Toledo, Lucas County and State of Ohio as it continues to study the business case for Wrangler production," Fiat-Chrysler said in a statement Friday.

In February, council approved purchase of large pieces of property near Jeep in hopes of keeping production here.

If a deal is for some reason not reached city could resell those properties.
