A recent report from the City of Menifee states that sales tax revenue in the city increased by nearly 8 percent from the first quarter 2011 to the first quarter 2012.

Quoting a report by the HdL Companies, the city press release notes that a previously published report that sales tax had decreased was inaccurate. A delay in reporting from one of the city's retailers cause the anomaly in the public report.

According to City Manager Bill Rawlings, the city's focus on economic development and attracting new restaurants is a major factor in the 7.8 percent increase. The arrival of Texas Roadhouse and Miguel's Jr. and the upcoming openings of BJ's Restaurant and Brewery and Panera Bread should continue to increase the sales tax revenue, he said.

"The realization of a 7.8 percent increase in sales tax revenue is yet another indication of the city's strong and improving financial position," Rawlings said.

For the calendar year 2010, the city saw an 11.3 percent increase over the previous year. The increase in 2011 was 12.7 percent.

  1. Has anyone thought of some type of activities for Kids. There is nothing here in Menifee for kids other then the sports parks and different teams for sports. What about a Movie Theater or Miniature Golf Park? What about a water park? Also a bowling alley, roller rink. What about John's Ineradicable Pizza for them at night? What about something to keep our teens out of trouble and parents closer to home instead of traveling to Lake Elsinore, Temecula or Hemet. Also other ideas could be Wal-Mart, Costco, McDonald (off of Scott Rd)more food in the Scott Rd area. Steve's Burgers (from Hemet) Farmer Boys? Freebirds? Olive Garden? White Lime Frozen Yogurt? Dairy Queen? Pizza Hut? Big Lots? What about Hobby Lobby? Or some other type of fabric/craft store. Applebee's Places that we don't need to go out of our lovely city unless we work in other surrounding areas. It seems we still have to travel to Temecula, Lake Elsinore, or Hemet to get some of the things that we should have in our city.
    Thank you for listening to me.
