ODESSA - People aren't spending as much in Odessa these days and that means less cash for the city.

The city's November sales tax check is about 1.5 million dollars.

And if you compare that to the same time last year, it's down 21 percent.

Odessa is already down a little for the 2009-2010 fiscal year, compared to what the city budgeted for.

But what they've raked in so far this fiscal year is down 23 percent compared to last year.
