County sales tax revenues are up

Dec 15, 2012

Sales tax revenue in Erie County is on the rise. 

Comptroller David Shenk says revenue was up more than 4-percent in October, compared to one year ago.  And for the first ten months of the year, sales tax revenue was up by nearly 9-million dollars over last year.  Shenk says while revenues look promising, maintaining revenue growth is a concern.
