FULTON COUNTY SALES TAX RECEIPTS FALL IN SEPTEMBER
Henry County wasn’t the only jurisdiction with lower sales tax revenues for September. The Fulton County Commissioners report their sales tax receipts this month are down about 3.5% from September of last year. Total revenue returned from the state topped $626,000; taking the 2013 figures to over 4.8 million dollars in sales tax revenues. That means the sales tax receipts for this year are running about $46,000 behind last year’s figures through the third quarter in Fulton County.
The Fulton County Commissioners also approved a global fleet fuel card program for the sheriff’s office; keeping deputies from having to pay for their own fuel, when away from Fulton County.
And a community reinvestment agreement for Fulton County Processing Ltd. was approved by commissioners.
