****************************************************
Holiday Sales Tax: The Christmas shopping season was a fairly good one for a number of area retailers, especially in the City of Cleveland where retail sales skyrocketed by 104 percent. That is evidenced by sales tax collections for November and December in the 10 incorporated cities with retail businesses across Liberty County. Sales tax dollars collected during those two months are delivered to cities in January and February for use in their budgets. The Texas Comptroller’s Office reports sales tax collections for that two-month period were up 4% in Liberty and 4.4% in Dayton. Countywide, the 10 cities’ share of tax revenue rose 43.6%. That means for businesses in those 10 towns, taxable sales were up $46.29 million with total retail sales of nearly $153.92 million during the two-month shopping season.

Transportation Projects: One possible state transportation project discussed at the recent Houston-Galveston Area Council of Governments public meeting involves widening FM 1960 in Dayton. The 2045 Regional Transportation Plan meeting was held Jan. 29 at the Liberty Center. Among the several potential projects proposed for Liberty County is widening of FM 1960 to four full lanes. Dayton City Manager Theo Melancon said the project has a relatively high probability of being funded. He said H-GAC and TxDOT also showed interest in the city’s plan to extend Waco Street to S.H. 321. Dayton’s city manager said the future of these proposed traffic projects will depend not only on whether funding is available for them but also if the extension and widening of roadways is feasible in the selected locations.
