Sales Tax figures show that Grenada is hanging right tight with North Mississippi towns revealed in the January 2017 statistics.
For January sales tax returns showed Grenada in the top 11 cities in the “662” area code that collected the most in the first of the year.
For January, Grenada showed a sales tax collection of $411, 727, that’s $43,600 more than December’s county and an increase of more than 10 percent.
The city’s year-to-date numbers show that Grenada is ahead of last year’s numbers. So far the city has accounted for $2.61 million year-to-date up from 2016’s $2.5 million, an increase of four percent.
Grenada Mayor Billy Collins said the rising sales tax numbers are great for the city and he thinks they will continue to climb.
