The state Comptroller’s Office last week released September allocation figures, which represent the actual sales tax for the month of July. The city collected $2.167 million for its general fund in September, which is a 14.8 percent increase from the prior year.

The Woodlands Township and the township’s economic development zone (EDZ) received $1.575 million and $1.372 million, respectively, in September. The township’s growth was 7.8 percent compared to Sept. 2012, and 2.8 percent for the EDZ.
