Sales tax revenue continues to climb for the city of Camdenton…

“This month, year to date, we were up 30%…30.85…over last year same month and year to date we are now up 19.06%” says city clerk Rene Kingston.

At the previous Board of Alderman meeting, she indicated that the 30% equals out to more than $39,000 dollars over March of 2020.

The city is anticipating that sales tax revenues will continue to remain high as another season of record-breaking tourism is expected for the region.

Real Estate sales are also continuing to break records, with some homes bringing in 3 to 5 times their value over 2019.

Homes on the market continue to remain in short supply and realtors indicate that even vacant lots are selling higher than usual.
