NEWPORT-The City of Newport collected over 11 percent
more in local sales tax revenue during the month of January as compared to what
was budgeted, or expected, for that period of time, City Administrator Scott
Collins made the announcement at the Tuesday, Feb. 12
meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen.
Collins said over $294,000 in the local option sales tax
was collected in January. That was a $36,000 increase over what had been
budgeted for January, he said.
After the meeting had ended, Alderman Kenny Morgan said
he was very pleased with the increase in revenue, and looked forward to the
city funding more projects or items that have been restricted due to lower
sales tax collections.
