Sales tax revenue at break-even on the year

CLINTON — The city currently is more or less at the break-even point with local sales tax revenue, commissioner Tom Edmunds reported to the city council Monday.

“The last bit of sales tax we got last reporting period, we earned less sales tax than we did the preceding year,” Edmunds said.

Edmunds said the city still was ahead year-to-date compared to the same period last year, “but a lesser percentage.”  “It’s only about six tenths of 1 percent,” Edmunds said.  “So, it’s very close to break-even.”

The council approved the following:

• the annexation of property located in the 600 block of N. Moore Street.  A porta-potty company, Gilford, plans to relocate their business to the site.

• a $6,000 donation to the annual fireworks display

• the finding of facts for a special use permit for Four Paws Salon and Retreat, LLC.  Four Paws plans a relocation of its business to accommodate expansion.

• the purchase of seven trees from Jason’s Lawn Service, LLC for $2,065.
