Town tax revenues near normal for May

The $46,949 reported in sales tax revenues to the La Conner Town Council in May by the state's Department of Revenue is the second highest 2024 monthly total, but below 2023's May collection by $1,123, 2.3%.

The special use fire tax revenues were similarly down, 4.2% below May 2023, now $4,594.

Hotel/motel tax collection was $11,740, 7.6% behind 2023's record May total, but also the second highest 2024 month.

The May totals represent March collections and are typically the last low, pre-tourist season totals. The summer months, reported through October, have been the highest revenue months.
