May sales in Laclede County brought in about $21-thousand-dollars more in general revenue and in CDT taxes as compared to last year, and about $8-thousand more in Law Enforcement Sales Tax revenue, which is good news for the county; however, gas tax revenue, also known as CART isn’t doing so well…

As to how the County is going to adjust for the drop in CART money, Cansler said they are going to have to wait until the end of the year to see how things play out.
