Liquor sales a taxing issue for St. Charles
ST. CHARLES – City finance director Chris Minick doesn’t discount the contribution liquor sales have made to the city’s budget.
Since its implementation in June 2010, the city’s 2 percent liquor tax has generated $2,167,996 for St. Charles, according to data through September. Per fiscal year, Minick said, revenues have annually amounted to about $1 million, or 2 to 2.5 percent of the general fund budget, which pays for public safety, public works and general administration.
“It does represent some real dollars and helps us provide programs, definitely,” Minick said. “It’s probably close to the cost of providing roughly 10 police officers.”
