Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland visits WKNO-TV's Behind the Headlines this week to look ahead at some of the issues facing the city in the future. Deannexation could have an impact on the city's tax base and income, but could also help cut the city's expenses. Also, the mayor talks about the tax incentives called PILOTsĀ (Payment In Lieu of Taxes), seen as a way to attract new business to Memphis. Host Eric Barnes is joined by Bill Dries of the Memphis Daily News.
