Page 6A NEWS Hays Free Press September 22, 2010 + STAFF REPORT Hays County's 10 incorpo- rated cities registered a slug- gish 2.1 percent growth in sales tax receipts this month, with Dripping Springs lead- ing the way by depositing $80,279, an increase of 36.9 percent above a year ago. San Marcos and Kyle also witnessed increases, but by less impressive margins. The county seat's tax income was a little more than $1,576,000 for the month. That's a respect- able 3.7 percent increase. Kyle's receipts for the month amounted to $224,068 and brought its total income for the year from this source to $2,230,000. San Marcos' to- tal take for the year stands at $14,991,000. Buda, although still ahead of Kyle for the year thus far, registered a dip in income, collecting $225,716. That's a sizeable loss of 17.1 percent below last September's take, but still larger than Kyle's net for the year. In addition, Buda is still running about $200,000 ahead in collec- tions over neighbor Kyle for the year. Wimberley finally had a good month with almost $39,000 in sales tax receipts for the month. It still lags behind Dripping Springs by $215,000 for the year. Total monthly receipts for the smaller towns and vil- lages were headed by Uhland with $38,024, followed by Woodcreek with $25,082, Nie- derwald at $15,039, Hays with $11,166, and Mountain City with $4,088. Totals for the 10 cities for the first 10 months of the year stand with nearly $20 million. That is a 4.1 percent increase over the first nine months of city sales tax receipts they banked in 2009.
