City finance director Tod DeZeeuw reported an upward trend in sales tax collections from 2010 to 2011, and again from 2011 to 2012. DeZeeuw gave his report during a budget workshop last week.
He said 2012 sales tax, through the third quarter, is up 1.7 percent ($60,455) compared to this time in 2010, and up 4.4 percent compared to 2011. All three years lag behind 2008, which hit a high-water mark of over $4 million by the end of September. Sales tax revenues affect the general fund, citywide capital improvement fund and rec center operations/maintenance fund.blog comments powered by Disqus
