Flagstaff sees improvement in sales tax revenues

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Sales tax figures for November show that Flagstaff experienced a nearly 9 percent year-over-year increase in the amount of tax revenue generated in the city.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that rebounds in construction-related activities and auto sales continue to drive the city's economy.

City officials are pleased with the improved figure, but revenues going into city coffers are still below historic peaks seen in 2007 and 2008.

Records show the city's tourism market has largely recovered the recession and broken historic revenue records earlier this year.
