GLEN ROSE — The city of Glen Rose is off to a great start in 2021 in terms of sales tax allocation money.

Last week, Texas Comptroller Glen Hegar sent the city $109,714.93, which was a 30.14% increase over the total the city received in 2020. It’s the highest January total since 2008 when the city received $140,080.54.

If the allocation is an indication of things to come, by year’s end, the city could see its highest allocation in sales tax of all time, surpassing 2008’s total of $1,513,320.30.

In 2020, the city received a total of $1,325,034.51 in sales tax allocation funds.

Earlier this month, Hegar announced he would send cities, counties, transit systems and special purpose taxing districts $783.2 million in local sales tax allocation, 2.6% more than in January 2020.

In comparison, Hico was down 1.13% from the year before in its January allocation, while Granbury was up 7.38%, Stephenville was up 6.77% and Cleburne was up 12.79%.
