BELL COUNTY - Local gains reflected a statewide increase of more than 11 percent, and a 7 percent upswing countywide in sales tax receipts.

Morgan’s Point Resort and Little River-Academy will receive payments more than 35 percent above October 2011 levels, the report from Texas Comptroller Susan Combs shows.

Among larger cities, Belton had a 16.5 percent — more than $50,000 — increase based on sales made in August. Temple grew at just over 5 percent, and Killeen rose 8.62 percent.

Belton has averaged a year-to-year monthly increase of 8 to 9 percent this year due to a revitalized downtown and active northwest quadrant.

Statewide, September sales tax revenue was $1.96 billion. That is an increase of 11.6 percent compared to September 2011.
