Edmond's tax rate increased in April to 3.75 percent after voters approved a half cent increase to build a new public safety center.
This year, $2.7 million has been collected for the $25.5 million public safety center.
City officials calculated a 3 percent growth for the fiscal year that started in July.
Shoppers in Edmond pay an 8.25 percent sales tax on purchases; 4.5 percent goes to the state and 3.75 percent is returned to the city. Of the city portion, 2 percent goes to the general fund for operations.
For the month of October, $2.8 million goes to the general fund to be used to operate the city. That is 17.31 percent more than collected a year ago.
The remaining sales tax is divided among firefighters, the police department, parks and capital improvements, as designated by Edmond voters.
