CATOOSA COUNTY COMMISSIONERS WERE STUNNED WHEN THE NEW COSTCO STORE FAILED TO PRODUCE HIGHER SALES TAX FIGURES IN IT’S FIRST MONTH OF OPERATION. IN FACT, THE CATOOSA SALES TAX REVENUE FOR NOVEMBER WAS ACTUALLY DOWN BY 34-THOUSAND DOLLARS, COMPARED TO THE SAME MONTH IN 2009. CATOOSA LEADERS ARE HOPING THAT THE NEW MEGA-STORE WILL INCREASE THE SALES TAX INCOME BY 3-MILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR.
