MIDLAND - The tumble in tax revenues continues for the Tall City.

Sales tax numbers for February show a more than 19% drop from sales tax collected in February of last year.

That's about $600,000.

During the oil boom, Midland sales tax revenue was seeing double digit growth, but revenues have been on the decline now for several months.
