   Grenada’s sales tax returns are back up and have recovered the $6,200 lost during last month’s dip, according to Mayor Billy Collins.  
   “It’s good that we are back up in sales tax,” said Collins. “Hopefully we can continue this upward trend through the rest of the fiscal year.”
   The figures provided show the city received $375,904 for February sales, which is nine percent above last year. Comparing the figures in 2011, $344,788 was collected.
   According to sales tax figures from the Mississippi Department of Revenue (MDOR), the city’s total of $3,325,034 exceeds last year’s total for the same period by $138,963. Grenada budgeted $3,873,689 for sales tax for the 2012 fiscal year.
   This is $36,894 more than the tax collected for January sales.
   Sales tax returns to the cities run two months behind the actual calendar year.
