County sales tax holding steady, despite 'hiccup' in booze sales

Auditor Roland Tkach remains cautiously optimistic about sales tax collection in Huron County.

Numbers recently released by Tkach reflect September sales.

The county brought in $719,378 in sales tax in September, up from $654,958 in September 2012.

Mom and Pop stores made up 30 percent of the newest total, while big-box stores, like Walmart and Kmart, accounted for 27 percent.

However, liquor sales slipped in September. "We had a hiccup with the liquor sales compared to last year," he said.
