San Angelo's half cent sales tax proceeds declined to the lowest level in three years in January 2016. One has to go back to January 2013 to find a lower number than the $605,393 the Development Corporation collected last month. Sales tax proceeds for the current fiscal year are down an average of 13.25%. That's significant. February will be a bellwether month with the rodeo in town. Hopefully it put more life in our local economy.
