City treasurer describes increase as ‘amazing’


CLINTON — The recent  12-month period  has been a good one for the city on the sales tax front.  Commissioner Tom Edmunds reported to the city council Monday Clinton has experienced a healthy increase over the recent year.

“Amazing” was the word Edmunds said city treasurer Clint Lichtenwalter used to describe the local tax uptick year-to-date.

“Our regular sales tax is up $160,000 in four months over this time last year,” Edmunds reported.

Non-home rule sales tax also is up by about $21,000, Edmunds said. 

“Excellent news,” he said.
