USPCC Helped Boost Sales Tax Revenue in Boulder

From the Daily Camera

The sixth stage of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge contributed to a more than 13 percent jump in retail sales during the month of August in Boulder, city finance officials said.

In August, the city collected $7.41 million in retail sales tax revenue, up more than $875,000 from the same month last year, according to the new sales and use tax revenue report. That $875,000 translates to more than $25 million taken in by Boulder retailers and restaurants.
