Sales tax revenues were up in all four major cities across Northwest Arkansas last month.
Fayetteville, Springdale, and Rogers continued a long stretch of positive figures, and Bentonville bounced back after two consecutive months in the red.
Here are the specifics:
Fayetteville received $1,636,582 for a 10.4 percent increase over last year, a difference of $154,450.
Rogers collected $1,312,152, a $62,120 increase over last year when the city received $1,250,032.
Springdale received $1,078,533 for a 10.5 percent increase over last year, a difference of $102,680.
Bentonville collected $853,978, a $156,660 increase over last year when the city received $697,319.
Each city collects a 2 percent sales tax. One percent goes into a general fund. The other 1 percent goes toward repayment of bonds. The numbers reported by the Fayetteville Flyer represent the 1 percent going into general funds.
July sales tax revenue is collected in August and delivered in September.
