Minden Mayor Tommy Davis was cautiously optimistic at the Minden City Council meeting Monday night, announcing that sales tax collections in Minden were on an upward trend.
“The sales tax fund shows three months (in a row) of growth in revenues,” Davis told the council.
“October was $2,000 over [expected revenue.] November was $33,000 over. December was $86,000 over. We definitely see a trend in sales tax revenue going up. We believe they are going to continue to go up.”
District A Councilman Wayne Edwards asked about the spike in December sales tax figures. “There is a reason for that,” Davis said.
