PERKINS TWP.

Erie County reported last week that sales-tax revenue collected in June -- reflective of actual sales activity in March -- was down steeply from the month prior. The dismal news came just four weeks after county commissioners had seen encouraging sales-tax collections in May.

On the whole, the county is expecting sales-tax revenue to be anywhere from 3 to 5 percent below last year's numbers.
