Cape Girardeau County has experienced little growth in sales-tax revenue this year. County Treasurer Roger Hudson says the county government’s half-cent sales tax has generated more than $6.6 million this year, an increase of 0.48 percent. He tells KZIM KSIM it is lower than projected.
County commissioners say they planned to stockpile tax revenue from the use tax before embarking on new construction. The November check totaled nearly $100,000, up nearly 11 percent from the same month a year ago.
