08/14/2020- So far, Marinette County’s sales tax revenues seem to be holding steady following the COVID-19 pandemic. Finance Director Laura Mans presented a sales tax comparison report to the County’s Administrative Committee Thursday which shows that although County sales tax took a $72000 hit in March, year-to-date, sales tax revenue is up about $98000 over 2019. That’s vastly better than the initial 14% reduction in sales tax that Wisconsin-based research organization Forward Analytics predicted counties would see at the start of the pandemic. While Marinette County will continue to keep a close eye on the impact COVID-19 has on their financials, Supervisor Don Pazynski calls Thursday’s report an “encouraging economic barometer” for the county.
