The Cape Girardeau County treasurer’s office released its midyear sales tax report, showing growth in tax revenue. The low growth is different from this time last year. Treasurer Roger L. Hudson tells KZIM KSIM more about the growth.
The collected use tax goes to a capital-improvement fund dedicated to building a new court facility and to renovate and repurpose the old courthouse. The commission will have to wait to see how much tax money is generated annually before moving ahead with bond financing.
