Blowing Rock Town Seal

BLOWING ROCK — Near the end of the July 14 Blowing Rock Town Council meeting, town Finance Officer Nicole Norman presented that the town’s decrease in sales tax revenue was 9 percent for the month of May while in its budgeting, the town had braced for a decrease of 25 percent.

“Including May, fiscal year to date we are still above last year’s collections by approximately 9 percent,” Norman said. “This is good news, and we will continue to monitor these revenues closely.”

According to Norman, monthly sales tax reports are collected in two-month periods, so June’s sales tax numbers will be released about Aug. 15.
