The money comes from a one-cent sales tax. Voters agreed in February 2011 to increase that tax from half-a-cent to a full cent.<br /><br />&quot;Our sales tax revenue has been coming it at the projected rate,&quot; Torreson said. &quot;It did double so we&#39;re right on target there.&quot;<br /> Tue, 13 Mar 2012 23:12:01 +0000 Rich Egger 11776 at http://tristatesradio.com Street Repairs Part of Macomb's Next Budget
