After showing stronger numbers earlier in the year, the city of Yankton’s sales tax figures for November continued the recent downtrend that has been seen since September.
City Manager Amy Leon says while sales tax numbers declined in November to about one and a half percent, overall for the year they are still in the black.
Leon says in spite of the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic, she is hopeful Yankton’s sales tax number can finish out the year on a strong note.
Leon says she is keeping a close eye on sales tax figures to see if budget adjustments will need to be made in the new year.
Leon says Yankton’s triple-B fund has seen an overall decline in 2020 of five-point-two-seven percent.
