PRYOR, OK — “Sales tax revenue builds streets, parks and buildings. It funds police departments and fire departments. Quality of life in a community depends on sales tax revenue,” said Pryor Mayor Jimmy Tramel.

American Express launched a campaign called “Shop Small,” now in its fourth year. The idea is to promote shopping in locally-owned small businesses.

“Of our sales tax, 3.65 percent stays local,” said Tramel.
