“Our sales tax deposit this month was $322,249 compared to the $311,865 that was deposited this time last year,” Mueller said about the 3.3% increase compared to the previous year’s comparison.

However, it is a 5.26% decrease from the $340,158 deposited in 2009 – 2010.

“This shows that while we are still better off than we were a year ago, we are still not back to the deposit amounts seen seeing two years ago,” Mueller added.

Mueller mentioned the monthly average collected in Fiscal Year 09-10 was $322,172, and in 10-11 it was $300,932 with two more months left to collect. our monthly average is $311,352.

Mueller went on to say that the monthly average at this time is $311,352 and needs to maintain an average of $300,000 per month to meet budget projections.
