As work to build a new budget continues, an increase in sales tax revenue for Laclede County is welcome news.
It comes as the county is anticipating an increase in total expenses next year.
Officials say through the month of November sales tax revenue is up 10-percent this year.
Laclede County Clerk and Finance Officer Linda Cansler says the increase means the county will be able to avoid what could have been significant budget cuts in 2023.
