Gateway City tax sales & use allocations up almost 14 % from last January
"mmm let's see how should we squander these $Millions?"
From the Texas State Comptroller's office:
Laredo's January,2012 sales & use tax allocation & comparison summary
Jan,2011 Jan,2012 change
$2,973,111 $2,613,188 13.77 increase
Comptroller Susan Combs added that, statewide, sales and use revenues have increased for the 21st consecutive month.
I can almost see the seedy council & mayor salivating with anticipation of how to spend these millions of taxpayer's hard-earned money. Is there some sort of immunization shot for that kind of foaming at the mouth?
