December sales tax revenue down


Staff Writer

At a time when an active group of Pagosa Springs’ citizens is arguing that steadily increasing sales tax revenues are enough to support an $18 million municipal debt for the purpose of building a community recreation center, the economy throws in a little reminder that things can occasionally go the other way.

December Sales Tax revenue received earlier this week totaled $624,799.55, a decrease of $30,534.88 or 4.66 percent compared to December 2012, according to a report from LeeAnn Foutz from the Archuleta County Finance Department.
