City sales tax receipts for November are encouraging for the fifth month of the fiscal year, City Manager Larry Stevens said this week.
So far the city has collected more than $13.6 million for the fiscal year, according to the office of Edmond Finance Director Ross A. VanderHamm. Year-to-date collections are over budget by $1,213 million
November revenue is $2.663 million, or 17.3 percent more than two years ago. The brisk sales tax collections represents the last two weeks of September and the first two weeks in October.
However, sales were less than last month’s 17.9-percent growth rate, Stevens said. The City Council budgeted for a 6 percent gain in sales tax revenue.
City staff is going to stop saying they expect the continuing high numbers of sales tax receipts to moderate, Stevens said.
