Rapid City Hits Sales Tax Slump

Rapid City's sales tax revenue is coming in under expectations. A Rapid City Journal article reported that the city's budget is created with a projected increase in two percent over the previous year's sales tax revenue. Right now, the growth is only 1.46 percent; Finance Officer Pauline Sumption reported that at this amount, the budget shortfall would only be about $70,000. In past years, the increase has been over three percent.
