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
Columbia City: $28,022.12
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.
