Sales tax revenues for the city of Lubbock are still on an upward swing, according to the latest figures from the Texas Comptroller's office.
The city's allocation this month for sales made in July was $4.5 million. That is about $182,000 more than the payment collected last year at this time.
Midland's sales tax revenue total is slightly lower than Lubbock's at $4.47 million, a decrease of more than five percent over the previous year.
Amarillo's is higher than both, at $5.8 million, an increase of 13 percent from last year.
