CELINA - Abundant consumer spending, new and expanded businesses and low unemployment this year helped break sales tax records in the Grand Lake area, officials said.
Mercer County's 1 percent sales tax for the first time ever collected more than $5 million throughout 2015. The amount is 7.9 percent or $369,154 more than that collected in 2014 and marks the fifth consecutive year of record-breaking tax collections. [More]
