Huron County remains in a steady financial position as 2019 winds down.

Auditor Roland Tkach recently released the latest sales tax numbers, which reflected July sales. The county’s portion was $801,335.

Huron County is already at about 93 percent of its sales tax revenue estimate for the year.

“We are right where we need to be,” Tkach said. “In November, we should meet the revenue estimate, which will leave us about a month’s cushion.”

Tkach said things look good on the spending side, too.

“All of the office holders are doing a great job watching costs,” he added. “The economy as a whole, locally, is chugging right along.”

Vehicles sales were at about 22 percent of the overall sales tax total for July.

“It was another strong month for vehicle sales,” Tkach said.

Liquor sales were up 6.75 percent compared to a year ago. Big-box stores accounted for nearly 30 percent of the total, while Mom-and-Pop stores were at about 33 percent.

“We’ll keep monitoring the situation,” Tkach said.
