OLCC payments allocated to Columbia County, local cities

County gets almost $250k through revenue sharing


Columbia County is getting $249,567.12 from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission as part of its liquor revenue allocated for the 2014-15 fiscal year.

The OLCC announced the payout details, which are part of a statewide distribution of revenues, last Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Cities in Columbia County are also receiving revenue allocations:

• St. Helens: $186,667.91

• Scappoose: $96,523.34

• Vernonia: $29,747.27

• Columbia City: $28,022.12

• Rainier: $27,418.25

• Clatskanie: $25,185,40

• Prescott: $792.28

Revenues are allocated depending on population, rather than on liquor sales within a given jurisdiction. To wit: Prescott does not have any commercial businesses that sell alcohol within its city limits.
