Despite Last Year’s Devastating Tornado, Business Is Booming In Moore.
Sales tax revenues for the first part of the year are 8.7 percent higher than in 2013. In fact, collections grew more than in other metro cities. Norman grew 5.7 percent, and Edmond and Oklahoma City each posted 2.7 percent gains.
Moore City Manager Steve Eddy said the surge comes from more than just reconstruction.
He said growing retail activity made up 6 percent of the growth. Sales tax collections in June were
12.3 percent higher than a year ago.
