Sales Tax Collections Up: Sales tax income for the calendar year 2018 increased for all 10 incorporated cities in Liberty County that receive sales tax revenue when compared to the previous year. Overall collections were up 9 percent countywide for 2018. With the final payment for the year now in, collections were up - in real dollars - by a total of $784,668 countywide. For the 12-month period, the local share of sales tax payments to Liberty County cities totaled $9,407,882. Turning to Chambers County, towns there were up a combined 8.9 percent for the year, though Anahuac and Old River-Winfree saw a decrease. Cities use sales tax revenue in their operating budget.
****************************************************
High Cost of DWI: It has been widely reported that even a first-time conviction for Driving While Intoxicated or impaired can get very expensive, very quickly. Once a driver makes the decision to drink alcohol and then get behind the steering wheel, very often law enforcement gets into the picture and the costs kick in very soon. If the driver is thought to be inebriated, then he or she is arrested and taken to jail. If convicted, the bare minimum costs, including court costs, fines, and probation fees, is $5,750. That’s for someone with no criminal record who was not involved in any kind of crash when arrested. The cost also does not include attorney fees or the increase in auto insurance rates. Also, if you want to keep driving after your license has been suspended, there will be an administrative fee.
****************************************************
Bird Count: The 22nd Annual Trinity River Christmas Bird Count is set for Thursday, December 27.
