Du Quoin finances still on target despite downturn in sales tax revenue
DU QUOIN -- Mayor Guy Alongi attributes a downturn in the city's sales tax revenue to the fact that more Americans are spending their hard-earned money online as opposed to local stores. "The biggest problem is companies like Amazon and eBay," he said. "There's no doubt that the amount of online shopping by our residents hurts us, but I'd like to think the decrease in sales tax ($460,000) is but a blip on the radar and that we will once again increase our sales tax revenue."
