Metro Area Economy Tanked in '09

We mentioned yesterday that Wisconsin sales-tax revenues were down quite a bit in year/year comparisons.

But they were not nearly as miserable as the sales-tax revenues in the four-county area afflicted by the Selig Playground tax.

Sales-tax collections for the Miller Park stadium district in 2009 were 9.45% below what was collected in the previous year, a record-setting drop, new figures show.

Collections totaled $24.1 million, about $2.5 million less than what was collected in 2008.

Statewide sales tax collections were down only (only!) 7.5%.
