City will get money from state pot sales

CLINTON — Both types of city sales tax is up for the year, commissioner Tom Edmunds reported during Monday’s Clinton City Council meeting.

“Non-home rule and regular sales taxes are above where we were this time last year,” Edmunds said.  “So, this is the first time in a long time that they’ve both been above.”

Edmunds also said the city would receive a small amount of money per capita from the state.  He said this was unexpected and was derived from cannabis sales.

“Even though we have not approved it (cannabis sales in the city), Edmunds said.

He said it would total about $7,000 a year for the city.

In other business, the council approved an economic development agreement with Marco NPK, Inc. and placed on file the purchase of a 2020 Ford Explorer for the sewer department from Anderson Ford for $30,385 and purchase of playground equipment for Downy Park from Molanda Company for $61,971.
