Why It’s So Important to Shop Local
For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community. What happens when you spend that same $100 at a national chain? Only $43 stays in the community.
The Town relies heavily on sales tax to fund police, fire, snow removal, roadwork, parks maintenance and other services our community needs. Residents pay, on average, just $35 per year in property tax. That funds about 17 days of fire and police services. Funding for the rest of Town services for the rest of the year is from sales tax.
