Jonesboro liquor sales revenue down in April

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Alcoholic beverage tax revenues were down in April, but a state basketball tournament gave a boost to Jonesboro's hotel occupancy revenues.

During the month of April the city collected $36,229.64 in alcoholic beverage taxes. That's down $1,201.25, or 3.21 percent, from last year's collection of $37,430.89.

Brickhouse, 281 South Main, was among those reporting a year-to-year decrease. The city collected $1,491 from the downtown restaurant in April. That's down 68 percent from last year's $4,676 total.

However, Chili's, located at 1900 Stadium, reported a 66.05 percent increase. The restaurant submitted $752.05 in revenues this April compared to last year's take.

The year-to-date totals are also down 13.96 percent. So far Jonesboro has collected $124,782.29. That's down $20,251.52 from this same time last year when the city collected $145,033.81.

Meanwhile, hotel tax revenues are up this year.

During April the city collected $50,952.47 in revenues. That's 48.35 percent increase over last April's take of $34,346.34.

Mike Burroughs, city accountant, cited the 6A State Basketball Tournaments as a factor in the increase.

The year-to-date numbers are also up $8,721.64, or 5.72 percent, from $152,568.65 in 2013 to $161,290.29 in 2014.

Lists for both the alcoholic beverage tax revenues and hotel occupancy revenues can be found below.
